ILP is included in the Pro Bono Guide for Individual Lawyers
ILP is excited to be included in the Australian Pro Bono Centre's Pro Bono Guide for Individual Lawyers. ILP can be found on page 15 under Global Opportunities.
The Pro Bono Guide for Individual Lawyers highlights the diverse range of opportunities available to lawyers who are interested in undertaking pro bono volunteer work in a personal capacity, outside a formal employment program. It serves to inspire lawyers to follow their passion and find pro bono opportunities that match their personal skills and interests. This guide is for lawyers who may be:
working part-time or reduced hours
retired or nearing retirement
on extended leave (parental, sabbatical, furlough)
working full-time and wish to volunteer out of work hours.
It lists a wide range of exciting opportunities available, including at community legal centres, independent not-for-profit legal services, through State and Territory referral organisations, and via global networks. The guide also contains some key considerations for volunteer lawyers, including constraints and regulatory requirements. Read the guide for advice on how to get started.
