This morning Glen McLeod, Lea Hiltenkamp, Chelsea White (with Gary the therapy dog) and Emiko Watanabe joined over 400 members of the legal profession walking in person and virtually around the state for the Law Access Walk for Justice on National Pro Bono Day as part of Law Week 2021. The event celebrates the pro bono contributions of the legal profession and raises funds for Law Access, the state’s pro bono referral service.
Law Access is a community legal service of last resort that co-ordinates individuals and community organisations seeking legal assistance to pro bono lawyers. The organisation assists some of the most vulnerable people in WA, who would otherwise be unable to obtain legal assistance.
