Some of the cases in which 6 St. James' Hall counsel have acted pro bono over the years are highlighted in our pro bono blog.
Pro bono publico (English: for the public good; usually shortened to pro bono) is a Latin phrase for professional work undertaken voluntarily and without payment or at a reduced fee as a public service.
Chambers is a member of Justice Connect (previously known as the Public Interest Lawyers' Clearing House, "PILCH"), which provides a referral service that facilitates pro bono referrals, linking us with individuals experiencing disadvantage and not-for-profit organisations which support them.
Solicitors wishing to instruct our counsel in pro bono matters may find useful The Australian Pro Bono Manual prepared by the Victorian Law Foundation.
