This site contains resources for probono & legal services attorneys, law professionals, and law students to assist in your representation of low income or disadvantaged clients. Please join our community.
Pro bono net Australia is designed to support information exchange between pro bono lawyers, staff of community legal organisations and others providing free legal services. It is based on the successful US based ProBono.net used by over 15,000 people.
Aside from this page, Pro Bono Net Australia works through practice areas. You should join a practice area(s) relevant to your work.
Join a Practice Area?
Join a practice area by filling out the registration form. Once admitted, there are tons of resources for volunteer lawyers, law students and legal aid lawyers. These include:
* Libraries of helpful materials
* Training calendars
* Contact information
Civil Justice Practice Area
The civil justice practice area is available for any other area of law. Further information coming soon.
If you can't find what you're looking for, click on the Help link on any page, or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
We hope to develop practice areas in other areas. To do so we need a public interest organisation with expertise in the relevant area. Areas such as domestic violence, consumer credit or housing law are potential topics for future practice areas. Please contact us with your ideas: email@example.com
