Community legal centres exist to help society’s most vulnerable to access justice, and are remarkably resilient. As the public interest law sector comes under more pressure from increased demands for services and downward pressure on traditional funding sources, community legal centres must increasingly engage with the business of funding and income diversification in addition to service delivery. Private law firms and Government also play an important role in helping community legal centres to service growing demand, as do volunteer law students. Join the Hon Justice Margaret Beazley AO and a distinguished panel as they share insights into the smart collaborations that enable the community legal sector to adapt to change whilst delivering great outcomes.
