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.
