We are delighted to announce the official launch of our partnership with Hall & Wilcox.  This partnership will provide members of The Centre with access to pro bono legal assistance from Hall & Wilcox right across the state.

Hall & Wilcox will provide the following range of pro bono legal services to The Centre and its members:

(i) telephone legal advice on an ‘as needs’ basis (i.e. phone a friend service);

(ii) high level issue identification and document review (i.e. triage service);  and

(iii) written legal advice,

in respect of commercial legal issues. The Hall & Wilcox team have a wide range of areas of expertise. Hall & Wilcox are a firm of more than 650 people, including 78 partners, and offer expertise in most key areas of commercial practice and a number of industry areas.  These areas include:

  • Banking and finance
  • Debt recovery
  • Employment and Workplace relations
  • Financial services
  • Insurance
  • Litigation and dispute resolutions
  • Migration services
  • Privacy
  • Regulatory and compliance
  • Start ups
  • Tax
  • Technology, media and communications

Hall & Wilcox run a coordinated pro bono practice that acknowledges the time spent by all staff on pro bono matters. Recognising that there is a compelling unmet need to assist with access to justice and unrepresented litigants in the Courts in our community, they encourage and give full credit for pro bono work to everyone at the firm.

Requests for pro bono legal assistance must be referred through The Centre for Volunteering and be approved by Hall & Wilcox.

The application form can be accessed in the Volunteer Management Resources (Members’ Only) section of our website in the Legal section.  Members will need to sign in to this section to access the form.
