Sourcing Pro Bono Opportunities:
Justice Project: Pro Bono Tool
Background on the Justice Project: Pro Bono Tool
As part of the Sourcing Pro Bono Opportunities Initiative (the Sourcing Pro Bono Initiative), the Justice Project: Pro Bono Tool builds on the Law Council of Australia’s Justice Project Final Report (the Justice Project Report) by providing a directory of organisations across Australia assisting each of the thirteen priority client groups identified in the Justice Project Report.
To date, the Centre has completed directories for (i) Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People, (ii) People who are Homeless, (iii) People who Experience Family Violence, (iv) Rural, Regional and Remote (RRR) Australians, (v) Prisoners and Detainees and (vi) Asylum Seekers as identified in the Justice Project Report. Directories are currently being created for all remaining client groups identified in the Justice Project Report.
The Justice Project: Pro Bono Tool is a practical resource for pro bono providers that:
- lists organisations working on justice issues for each client group and their location in Australia;
- links to each organisation’s website including information about providing pro bono support, if available;
- lists the Justice Project Report recommendations (the Priorities) each organisation is working on; and
- the type of legal services each provides (direct legal services/policy reform).
