Justice Connect is working alongside legal organisations in Victoria and NSW to deliver a coordinated response to the bushfires impacting many people and small businesses. Organisations are working together to ensure that the process for seeking legal help is clear.
Justice Connect has agreed to coordinate the pro bono response to the bushfires in both Victoria and NSW. Justice Connect will receive referrals of people and small businesses (including farms) from frontline services, and will allocate these people to appropriate pro bono assistance via our Pro Bono Portal.
We are making our award winning Pro Bono Portal available to any firm in Australia that wishes to offer pro bono legal assistance to people, community groups and small businesses affected by the bushfires.
