Give to the UQ Pro Bono Centre

The UQ Pro Bono Centre (PBC) is one of the only university-based centres of its kind in Australia, celebrating 10 years of operation in 2019. The community legal sector partners with the UQ Pro Bono Centre student volunteers to enhance their capacity for law reform work, community legal education and direct client assistance. Through partnerships with community legal centres, charities and not-for-profit organisations, UQ Law students undertake a wide range of activities, improving access to justice for the most vulnerable. Activities include clinical placements, completing research projects, law reform submissions, developing community legal education materials, and delivering workshops to high school students.

Throughout 2021, the UQ Pro Bono Centre Philanthropy Committee has been raising much-needed funds, with the aim of expanding activities to rural, regional and remote areas of Queensland.  To date, the Committee has raised over $115,000 – a wonderful achievement during our first phase of the campaign and testament to our community.

Give to our Mooting Program

UQ Law Moot CourtYou can support students to develop their research, written and advocacy skills and to build their confidence in public speaking.  Mooting is the presentation of legal and factual arguments against an opposing counsel and before a judge, tribunal member or arbitrator. It resembles the experience that a student can expect to have in a court, tribunal or in arbitral proceedings after qualifying as a lawyer.

Students involved in the mooting program benefit from a unique learning opportunity that encourages them to step outside their comfort zone and challenge themselves. Mooting can enhance a student’s employment opportunities as a legal professional, help to build confidence in public speaking, and assist in developing research and presentation skills. Your contribution to the Mooting Program helps our students meet the cost of travel to national and international competitions.
