The UQ Pro Bono Centre is holding a drop-in session before the gelato night to answer student queries about how to volunteer your legal skills to benefit the community. 

Come along to this info session to meet the UQ Pro Bono Centre's new Practitioner-in-Residence, and hear what projects you could get involved with. The kinds of tasks our students tend to assist with include:

  • legal research;
  • casework assistance and preparation for proceedings such as proof-reading submissions,
  • preparing chronologies and lists of authorities,
  • analysing evidence and transcripts;
  • assistance in court;
  • assistance with submissions to government;
  • drafting community legal education resources;
  • designing/updating legal materials such as fact-sheets.

Want to find out more? Drop into the Law School Boardroom any time between 3pm and 4pm on Thursday 2 March. The Law School Boardroom is located in the Forgan Smith Building upstairs from the Law Library foyer area, room 01-W353.
