Access to justice

Community & pro bono

We see equality in the ability to access justice as fundamental to the upholding of the rule of law.

When access is unequal, people can find it difficult to navigate the rules that govern their lives and some of their interactions with the rest of society and to secure remedies when others break the law. As a result, their confidence and stake in the rule of law diminishes. Over time the rule of law is undermined. 

Our global pro bono practice tackles many of the barriers that prevent people from accessing justice. We provide free legal advice and representation in deprived communities around the world. We support strategic litigation aimed at unlocking access to basic rights for minority groups and others suffering from discrimination.

Future Focus 

In FY23, our firm continued to focus on helping our clients navigate a complex legal and regulatory landscape and on advancing our own responsible business strategy. We did this with an eye towards the future, concentrating on areas critical to our sustainability and the challenges and opportunities we know our clients will face in the future.
