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.

We welcome practising and retired legal practitioners, law students and any others who wish to contribute in their own way.

LawRight and its clients receives invaluable assistance from all of its volunteers who have given their time for the benefit of disadvantaged and vulnerable Queenslanders.
The Queensland legal profession has always provided pro bono assistance to our communities. Since LawRight (formerly QPILCH) was founded in 2001, the profession has made a concerted contribution to helping people who are the most vulnerable in our State. Recognising this achievement, LawRight (formerly QPILCH) has published a report celebrating the legal profession’s commitment to structured pro bono.
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.
2015 - 2016 was another full year with a 75% increase in new files over 2014-15, providing access to justice to the most vulnerable in our community. Thank you to all our members, supporters and partners whose contributions made it possible.
