We’re excited to have received Department of Justice funding to help implement the new WA pro bono model.
From 1 July 2020 there will be greater focus to help disadvantaged individuals secure access to justice through pro bono legal assistance.
New pro bono requirements apply to every law firm who is contracted to provide legal services to WA government departments and agencies.
Law Access has been funded to work with the 28 community legal centres in WA to maximise referrals through our new pro bono pathway.
With the new model we will be able to continue to build and develop pro bono culture in Western Australia within the legal profession.
