Over fifty of Australia’s best law firms and legal teams are members of Justice Connect.

Alongside them are community legal centres and professional associations, including the Law Institute of Victoria and the Victorian Bar.

 

Our valued network of over 10,000 pro bono lawyers offer their time, expertise, and dedication to prevent the negative consequences of legal problems experienced by individuals and not-for-profit organisations.

With their help, we are able to deliver impactful responses to unmet legal need, and improve the community’s wellbeing.

In the 2020-21 financial year, our members gave over 51,000 hours of their work to help our clients.

Pro bono is in our DNA. When Justice Connect was founded in 1992, it was to build a culture of pro bono work in Australia. Today, we continue to help that culture grow and evolve so that more people can access justice.
