Pro Bono Publico: for the public good

17 Jul 2018
Legal problems in life are often hidden and hard to identify, and vulnerable people in our community are often the most affected.

The UQ Pro Bono Centre received a 2016 Australian Award for University Teaching (AAUT): Awards for Programs that Enhance Learning.

Designing legal services so that people receive the help they need, when they need it, is a focus for governments and the legal assistance sector across Australia. It’s also something that is strongly embedded in the student learning experience at The University of Queensland’s TC Beirne School of Law. The School’s UQ Pro Bono Centre has coordinated student pro bono legal work in partnership with the legal profession for almost a decade.

One example is the MsP, a pro bono partnership between Caxton Legal Centre and the UQ Pro Bono Centre.
