LawRight is a not-for-profit, community-based organisation providing pro bono legal services to individuals and community groups.
Our vision is for a just, fair and accessible legal system where no-one is disadvantaged through lack of resources, knowledge or ability.
LawRight provides pro bono civil law services to people unable to afford private legal assistance and ineligible for Legal Aid. To apply for help, complete our application form, below.
LawRight factsheets and other publications are now available at Legalpedia.org.au, which uses wiki software to enable ready-access to resources and contributions and updates by pro bono lawyers.
We welcome practising and retired legal practitioners, law students and any others who wish to contribute in their own way.
Publicly available and password-protected resources to help practitioners in their pro bono work.
The Mental Health Legal Practice (MHLP) is urgently looking for PLT students to join their service. For more information about the role, please click here.

Thank you to everyone who helped make the 10th annual Queensland Legal Walk a great success. Over 800 walkers joined colleagues from across the legal profession and raised over $80,000 for LawRight which will directly support vulnerable Queenslanders through providing access to justice.
Sincere thanks to our Walk sponsors Qld Law Society and Brisbane City Council, Lord Mayors Suburban Initiative Fund (Cllr Vicki Howard) and our event organisers and supporters and we look forward to seeing you again next year.

LawRight (formerly QPILCH) has published its first report assessing the impact of its work for clients. The report shows that our work makes a difference in the lives of vulnerable and disadvantaged Queenslanders and is appreciated by them irrespective of the outcome they receive.
