Nothing motivates lawyers more than the ability to make an impact – on the law, legal systems and people’s lives. At Colin Biggers & Paisley, we have the ability to help disenfranchised and disadvantaged people in our community. We can make the justice system work for individuals who have nothing more to give than their thanks. We can defend them, protect what is or should rightfully be theirs. We can give them a voice. We can change laws and we can make laws. And so, at the very core of the Colin Biggers & Paisley Foundation is the provision of pro bono legal services and advocacy for:
- individuals who need assistance but have no other avenue available to them
- matters that are in the public interest
- charities, NGOs, UN agencies and other non-profit organisations which work on behalf of low income or disadvantaged members of the community or for the public good
The range of pro bono legal services we offer includes advice, specialised legal clinics, legal research, policy analysis, parliamentary submissions, secondments, legal education, legal skills workshops, strategic litigation and advocacy.
