Championing pro bono

19 September 2013
We build, support and engage a strong commitment to lawyers’ pro bono responsibility

We collaborate with our members to promote an understanding amongst lawyers that we all share a responsibility to provide pro bono legal assistance to people experiencing disadvantage (and the groups that support them) who are unable to pay for legal help or get assistance from another source.

We aim to increase the capacity of the profession as a whole and improve the efficiency of pro bono legal work. We build and engage commitment to pro bono through support and training, specialist advice and partnership with other lawyers, and by contributing to public policy about access to justice and the role of pro bono.
