The second edition of Pro Bono Partnerships and Models – a Practical Guide to What Works is the result of the contributions of many individuals and organisations. In particular, the Centre wishes to thank LexisNexis for their generous support.
Revisions for the second edition of What Works were made by Susan Hunt, Acting Senior Policy Officer at the Centre, with the help of the Centre’s other staff (John Corker, Afton Fife, Daniel Jacobs, Lucy Martin and Lucy Sunman). This online version was created by Daniel Jacobs with the assistance of Eva Wen, Mevena Roshan and the staff of the Centre. The Centre also thanks its student interns (David Le, Kaitlyn Maia, Priya Singh, Amina Al Ramadan and Rebecca Wong) for their assistance.
The Centre also acknowledges those who contributed to the first edition of What Works, in particular Leanne Ho (then Senior Policy Officer at the Centre), the Victoria Law Foundation and pro bono coordinators from numerous firms. They are acknowledged in full in the first edition acknowledgements.
The following organisations and individuals participated in consultations, authored or updated case studies, provided feedback on earlier drafts, and made many other invaluable contributions to the second edition of What Works.
