Joining forces to provide access to justice
The relationship between the law centre and our corporate partners is an example of legal organisations with contrasting characters and objectives working together to reduce the gap between those who can afford to understand and assert their rights, and those who cannot.
Support from our corporate partners includes helping dozens of their trainee solicitors to volunteer their time through our legal advice clinics; making generous contributions to our funds; and help with all sorts of back-office business management.
