The Australian Pro Bono Centre (the Centre) congratulates the Australian Legal Sector Alliance (AusLSA) on the recent launch of its 2020 Legal Sector Sustainability Update Report. The report was launched by Richard Jennings, General Manager at Australian Legal Sector Alliance on 1 December 2020. The Australian Pro Bono Centre is pleased to assist AusLSA with the development of the pro bono section of the report.
AusLSA is an industry-led association working collaboratively to promote best practice sustainability and performance across the legal sector. FY2020 represents the fifth year in which pro bono reporting has been specifically included in AusLSA’s sustainability reporting framework. In particular, all AusLSA members were asked whether they were signatories to the National Pro Bono Target administered by the Centre. Eighty-one percent (an increase from seventy-seven last year) of the AusLSA members indicated that they were signatories, with close to half meeting the Target in 2020.
