Public Interest Address

LawRight’s Public Interest Address (PIA) for 2021 was delivered on 25 October by the Hon. Susan Kiefel AC, Chief Justice of the High Court of Australia and celebrated 20 years of pro bono through LawRight.

A copy of the speech is available here.

Since 2002, the PIA has canvassed Guantanamo Bay concerns, immigration detention, civil justice reforms, public interest litigation and the role of lawyers in environmental, mental health, child protection and First Nations community challenges.

20th Anniversary Event

Dear Friends,

On behalf of the Management Committee, the President of LawRight, The Honourable Roslyn Atkinson AO, invites you to join with LawRight’s  foundation year supporters, representatives of the original law firms and members, life members, Friends of LawRight and senior staff, to thank those pioneers and celebrate 20 years of LawRight. Generously hosted by Clayton Utz, our celebration will capture memories of the time and remind us all of how powerful small steps can be.

Queensland Legal Walk 2023

Queensland Legal Walk 2023

On the 16 May 2023 we celebrated the power of pro bono at the Queensland Legal Walk 2023. The crowd started from the Brisbane waterfront, at their regional centre, local beauty spot, or solo starting at 7 am. We celebrated the legal profession’s commitment to access to justice! Stay up to date with LawRight’s news to attend next year’s walk!

Queensland Legal Walk 2020

The Queensland Legal Walk is held annually in May on the Tuesday of Law Week. In 2020 the walk was held on Tuesday 19 May.

2020 is a year like no other, and the 2020 Queensland Legal Walk was like no other Walk.

Funds raised from the Walk help to:

  • grow our health justice partnerships, which put lawyers into health settings to assist vulnerable people experiencing complex social and legal problems; and
  • replenish the Disbursement Fund, which helps clients of pro bono lawyers and community legal centres to cover expenses associated with their legal matter.
