This seminar is also being delivered via webinar.
The concept of doing unpaid legal work to further ‘the public good’ has existed, in one form or another, for as long as the legal profession itself.
Pro bono legal work benefits the community as a whole. It is common in cases raising important questions of public law for the court to have the assistance of counsel and solicitors who are acting pro bono. And it is notable how frequently the work is undertaken by eminent members of the profession. It is also in the interests of the community at large that vulnerable people are afforded equal access to justice regardless of their capacity to pay.
This panel session will discuss the pro bono landscape in Western Australia. You will hear from senior representatives from community legal centres and lawyers in private practice about the best ways to get involved in pro bono legal work.
