Pro bono legal assistance is the client’s legal assistance undertaken without charge. Pro bono assistance is generally available for charities, not-for-profits (NFPs), and community organisations, or where the required legal assistance is in the broader public interest.
Hall & Wilcox and Synergy Law provide pro bono legal assistance to member organisations of Volunteering ACT. The legal assistance required must fall within one of the areas of expertise listed on the Pro Bono Legal Assistance Referral Form.
Please note, that there are some instances where Hall & Wilcox and Synergy Law may not be able to assist, for instance, if a matter is not within their areas of expertise, or where they do not have the necessary staff available at a particular time. Pro bono legal assistance is not available for personal legal matters. The request for legal assistance must be on behalf of a charity or not-for-profit organisation. For example, pro bono legal assistance is not available for personal legal matters such as the sale or purchase of personal property.
