UQ Pro Bono Centre

Why pro bono?

Public interest practice is a key professional value of lawyers. Through the Pro Bono Centre, the School of Law would like all its students to recognise the value of pro bono work and commit to undertaking pro bono work as students and in their professional careers. The Centre is the only resource of its type in an Australian law school.

Pro bono, by definition, is work for no reward. The benefits to students lie in the work experience, the professional networks formed, and in the knowledge they are working in the public interest for the benefit of the community.

Mission, governance and relationships.
For students interested in gaining legal experience and giving back to the community.
