Social Responsibility and Pro Bono

We never lose sight of the responsibility of the legal profession in the broader community.

We support a number of initiatives and not for profit organisations across Australia through pro bono legal work and charitable donations. We have recently signed up to the National Pro Bono Target with the Australian Pro Bono Centre as a part of our ongoing commitment to the community.

The legal industry has an important role to play in improving access to legal services and justice for less advantaged individuals and groups. Organisations we support and provide pro bono services to include:
