National Pro Bono Day 2009
Friday 15 May 2009 was National Pro Bono Day.
National Pro Bono Day provided an opportunity to celebrate the pro bono work done by the legal and other professions. We encourage you to see it as an opportunity to make announcements about new initiatives, report on work done or if you are the recipient of pro bono services to simply thank those that provide them.

Walk for Justice
The centerpiece of National Pro Bono Day was the Walk for Justice held for the first time in Australia in 2008.
The 5-km event, held simultaneously in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide,attracted nearly 1,000 walkers and raised more than $30,000, towards funding the work of the Public Interest Law Clearing Houses in each State. Among the walkers were the Attorneys-General of Queensland and NSW and a number of Chief Justices and Judges from the State Supreme and District Courts.
The organisation of the Walk for Justice was undertaken locally by the Public Interest Law Clearing Houses in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane and the LAw Society of SA in Adelaide.
Than you for being creative in supporting National Pro Bono Day 2009.
