The Queensland Legal Walk is the premier celebration of the legal profession’s commitment to pro bono.

Please join us on 15 May 2018 as legal communities across Queensland walk together to support access to justice and raise funds for LawRight. LawRight is a community legal centre founded by the legal profession to address gaps in the civil justice system and provide free legal help to the most vulnerable in our community.

The Walk commences simultaneously at 7.00am in locations across the State as part of National Law Week. All levels of the legal profession from judges to law students, have supported this event since 2008. In Brisbane, over 600 supporters will walk from the Queen Elizabeth II Court Complex through the city and alongside the River, finishing with breakfast and Walk Awards at the Courts.  

Walks will also take place in the following locations at 7am on Tuesday 15 May 2018, and each event will start and finish in the follow locations:

  • Cairns: Fun Ship playground, north end of Esplanade. Walk will be led by Justice Henry and will be followed by coffee and light breakfast at the Fun Ship playground.
  • Townsville: Townsville Bulletin Square, Flinders Street, Townsville. Walk will be led by Justice North, Justice Mullins and Judge Coker.

Thank you for your support and we look forward to seeing you and your colleagues at the 2018 Queensland Legal Walk!

LawRight Inc

LawRight (formerly QPILCH) assists Queenslanders who are disadvantaged in our legal system - those who experience homelessness or mental health concerns, are refugees, young people transitioning from care, self-represented litigants or those who need civil law representation.
Without LawRight, clients can’t secure housing, income and legal rights, participate confidently in the justice system or improve their well-being.

LawRight connects with clients through on-line, state-wide intake or through direct contact with clients at hospitals, health, homelessness and community services in Brisbane, Townsville, Cairns and Toowoomba.
LawRight is a partnership with private law firms, barristers, law schools and other community, health and justice stakeholders to provide efficient, effective, evidence-based solutions to community problems.

LawRight resources the community with innovative tools to access justice, including the Legal Health Check, Legalpedia, training for community workers and on-line videos.

In 2015-16, LawRight assisted over 3,000 disadvantaged Queenslanders in partnership with the Queensland legal profession who provided more than 22,000 hours of pro bono services.
