LawRight primarily works with law firms and in-house legal units, but we welcome individual lawyers who wish to volunteer at LawRight during business hours.
Retired and career break solicitors
We welcome retired and career break practitioners who wish to volunteer at LawRight and can provide their knowledge, skills and experience to assist disadvantaged Queenslanders, and to mentor students. Your involvement at LawRight is generally limited to assessing applications and writing correspondence and advices; LawRight does not give advice directly to clients except in our clinics.
Retired practitioners can obtain a volunteer practising certificate from the QLS at no cost, so long as they volunteer through a CLC such as LawRight. Our professional indemnity insurance and volunteer insurance covers lawyers who volunteer with LawRight.
If you would like to assist LawRight by doing pro bono legal work (rather than volunteering at LawRight) you may wish to become a member.
