Public Interest Address

LawRight’s Public Interest Address (PIA) for 2021 was delivered on 25 October by the Hon. Susan Kiefel AC, Chief Justice of the High Court of Australia and celebrated 20 years of pro bono through LawRight.

A copy of the speech is available here.

Since 2002, the PIA has canvassed Guantanamo Bay concerns, immigration detention, civil justice reforms, public interest litigation and the role of lawyers in environmental, mental health, child protection and First Nations community challenges.

Walk + Give

Queensland still needs good pro bono to achieve access to justice so we’ve set an ambitious fund-raising goal of $200,000.

We want each walker to raise $200 and each team to raise over $1,000.

LawRight relies solely on your fund-raising to continue our:
•    New pilot service for self-represented litigants in the Magistrates Court
•    Health Justice Partnership at Mater Young Adults Health Centre
•    Financial counsellor service for people experiencing or at risk of homelessness
•    Disbursement fund, supporting pro bono work by Community Legal Centres and the legal profession.

$40 per adult and $30 for students

Red Wine for Justice

Red Wine for Justice is held every two years, alternating with the Public Interest Address. The 2019 event was generously hosted by Herbert Smith Freehills and the wines donated for drinking and auction fuelled some excited bidding, with over $47,000 raised for LawRight.

Register your attendance at Red Wine for Justice 2021.

Event update

We know you share our disappointment that Red Wine for Justice is one of the events impacted by covid restrictions. We are working with our hosts and special guests to reschedule the event and will let everyone know the new date as soon as we can. If you would like a refund of your tickets or a return of your donations, please do not hesitate to contact

Queensland Legal Walk 2020

The Queensland Legal Walk is held annually in May on the Tuesday of Law Week. In 2020 the walk was held on Tuesday 19 May.

2020 is a year like no other, and the 2020 Queensland Legal Walk was like no other Walk.

Funds raised from the Walk help to:

  • grow our health justice partnerships, which put lawyers into health settings to assist vulnerable people experiencing complex social and legal problems; and
  • replenish the Disbursement Fund, which helps clients of pro bono lawyers and community legal centres to cover expenses associated with their legal matter.
