Thank you

We are so grateful to everyone who has supported PCLC this past year.
We could not achieve our goals without your support, involvement, investment and enthusiasm.



For ten years, Russell Kennedy Lawyers has been supporting PCLC through our pro bono partnership. This pro bono support enhances our organizational capabilities as well as our capacity to provide our legal services with assistance such as mentoring, professional development , PCLC’s disbursement fund, governance, marketing and business support. Special thanks to Emma Dunlevie, Principal and John Corcoran AM, Principal and the entire Russell Kennedy team.

Our pro bono partnership with Gaden’s family and relationship law team supports the Centre’s family law and family violence litigation work. The partnership provides mentoring, professional development and a client referral pathway targeted to women experiencing family violence.

Our work in community legal education is supported by our pro bono partnership with King & Wood Mallesons. We have teamed up with King & Wood Mallesons TalkLaw@ program to deliver the program to local students, targeting students in areas with high migrant backgrounds and/or disadvantage.


Our Legal Community often unites to support PCLC’s clients with the provision of pro bono services, including special counsel mentoring, whole of firm contribution to our volunteer program, legal practice management support, training and resources and advocacy to support our clients on a pro-bono basis or significantly reduced fee briefs.
