UQ Pro Bono Centre

The University of Queensland’s award-winning Pro Bono Centre prepares law students to be compassionate, empathetic and highly skilled legal graduates.  With Pro Bono Centre support, law students work directly with vulnerable clients, engage in public interest legal research, and support access to justice initiatives – all under the careful guidance and supervision of legal academics and/or practitioners.  The benefits to students lie in the work experience, the professional networks formed, and the knowledge they are working ‘for the public good’.  

Donors to the UQ Pro Bono Centre fund innovative learning programs including the Health Advocacy Legal Clinic offered in partnership with LawRight and the Mater Hospital located within the Mater Young Adults Clinic, and the Culturally Competent Legal Clinic which places law students under supervision of an Indigenous solicitor in Logan to learn, through doing, how to best meet the legal needs of culturally diverse young people facing criminal charges.  Our work with refugee clients is also only possible with the support of our generous donors.  More than 80% of donor funds are expended directly on supervision for students doing face to face client work within community legal centres.
