Pro bono

Our pro bono work is strategically focused and carefully targeted for maximum benefit. We help overcome disadvantage by building meaningful connections with individuals and communities.

Legal problems often worsen hardship among vulnerable Australians. These individuals also face barriers that prevent them from accessing the justice system, and this adds to their disadvantage. As a leading independent law firm, we consider it our responsibility to use our expertise in ways that improve the lives of those in need. We take this work very seriously.

Our focus

We undertake impactful case work and pursue system change that improves legal outcomes for people in need. Our focus includes:

  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and organisations
  • women and elderly Australians experiencing family violence
  • human rights

Our approach

We respond to unmet legal need and deploy strategic responses that make a difference. Our work is timely, targeted and tailored. We're known for:

  • building and sustaining meaningful, long-term relationships in the community
  • empowering our clients
  • developing legal capability among vulnerable Australians

Our firm is a member of Justice Connect and Law Right. We're also a signatory to the National Pro Bono Aspirational Target.
