Walk for Justice 2011
Celebrate National Pro Bono Day and join us on the Walk for Justice 2011.
All around Australia, members of the legal community will be walking in support of pro bono legal services. Last year the Walk attracted over 1,400 walkers nation-wide and was led in each state by some of the leading lights of the Australian judiciary and profession.
What is Walk for Justice?
Walk for Justice 2011 is a 5km walk around the Adelaide CBD to raise money for pro bono legal services in South Australia, while also promoting access to justice.
This year the Walk will commence at 7:30am on Monday 16 May 2011, the first day of the Law Week in South Australia. The Walk is a 5km loop starting and finishing at Victoria Square.

We particularly encourage all members of the legal profession (the Judiciary, the Bar, in-house counsel, law firms, sole practitioners, academics, law students and so on) to take part in the Walk. It is a unique public demonstration of our legal community’s commitment to improving access to justice.
