National Pro Bono Day, falling on Tuesday 15 May this year, celebrated the role and contribution of pro bono legal work in Australia. Lawyers in Queensland, South Australia and Western Australia participated in Walks for Justice, raising almost $200,000 towards the work of clearing houses in these states.
National Pro Bono Day is just four short weeks away on Tuesday 15 May, the second Tuesday of Law Week. If you’re in Queensland, South Australia or Western Australia, get along to these Walks to raise funds for your state’s pro bono clearing house.
The Good360 platform allows CLCs to obtain thousands of dollars’ worth of goods for their clients and operations. All they need is a $500 sponsorship. Can your law firm or company sponsor one of these eight CLCs that are still hoping for a corporate sponsor?
The 2017 Walk for Justice was a great success. Despite a slight drop in numbers overall, the event has already raised a record $173,299 for LawRight, Law Access WA, Justice Connect and JusticeNet SA, up from $157,000 in 2016.
