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.
We speak with LawRight joint directors Sue Garlick and Linda MacPherson, about their new role and how they view the future of LawRight and pro bono in Queensland.
Tony Woodyatt has just stepped down as the LawRight/QPILCH’s first director after nearly 16 years at the helm. Now is an appropriate time to recognise his significant contribution to the development of the pro bono movement in Australia.
