Our pro bono partners
The Centre receives extensive support from the Canberra legal and professional community, particularly in support of our litigation practice.
We have partnerships with leading legal and accounting firms helping us deliver high quality legal assistance to our clients and run a transparent and accountable organisation.
Pro bono support
We partner with the best lawyers and firms in Canberra so women who are experiencing financial disadvantage can still access the best advice. With their support, we increase our capacity to deliver more than 600 additional advices per year.
Many hands make light work. Our pro bono partners provide crucial organisational support, applying their specialist skill and expertise to help us make the Centre a high skilled and professional community legal centre. Our partnerships with leading professional service providers mean our in-house team can focus on what matters most: your safety and legal needs.
Our "friends on the phone"
Our client’s needs can be complex, and we collaborate with specialist practitioners to ensure our client’s receive expert advice for their situation.
We also have our “friends on the phone” who provide our lawyers with legal support when our work intersects with other specialist areas of practice outside our expertise. Tony Lane, Head of Insolvency at Vincents Accountants is our go to for all questions about insolvency and bankruptcy. Stephen Bourke, Director at SuperSplitting, is one of Australia’s leading superannuation experts also a proud supporter of the Centre.
