Law Access Overview

Law Access is a not-for-profit organisation that coordinates the giving of pro bono (free or reduced cost) legal assistance by the Western Australian legal profession. The service is targeted at not-for-profits and individuals in genuine need of legal assistance who satisfy a means and merits test.

We wish to thank the lawyers and law firms who accept pro bono referrals, our funders, donors, and the sponsors who provide direct in-kind support for our administration. We would also like to thank the Law Society of Western Australia’s CPD presenters who donate to Law Access.
