Thank you

It is only through the support of our passionate and dedicated network of supporters and funders that PCLC continues to achieve positive and often life changing outcomes for its clients. Their  support is critical to our success.   Our sincere thanks to you all.

Pro Bono Supporters

Our pro bono partnership with Russell Kennedy Lawyers continues to support and strengthen our capability to provide legal services.

Special thanks to Emma Dunlevie (Special Counsel), John Corcoran AM (Principal) and Olivia McMillan (Associate) and the entire Russell Kennedy team.

 

We extend out thanks to Dalit Kaplan of Storywell  who continued our  40 stories project, producing a series of audio pieces featuring individual stories about PCLC work and clients. Dalit has generously provided a significant component of the project on a pro bono basis.

Our Legal Community rallied to support our Centre and clients by providing a wide range of pro bono services, including special counsel mentoring, firm contribution to our volunteer program, legal practice management support, training and resources  and advocacy to support our clients on a pro-bono basis or significantly reduced fee briefs.
