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.
LawRight is currently seeking student volunteers for our Enforcement Hearing Duty Lawyer Service at the Brisbane Magistrates Court.
Applications are due by 5pm on Thursday 15 November. More details can be found here.

LawRight will be closed for two weeks during the holiday season from Friday 21 December 2018 and re-opening on Monday 7 January 2019.
During this time our Application Form will also be disabled and we will not be assessing applications for assistance until we re-open in the new year.
