Title

Pro Bono Legal Services in Family Law and Family Violence

Subtitle Understanding the Limitations and Opportunities
Abstract

Despite the fact that more lawyers and law firms are becoming increasingly involved in pro bono service delivery, obtaining pro bono legal assistance in family law matters is very difficult, with many pro bono providers and referral schemes simply not accepting applications for pro bono assistance in family law.

In many areas, this assistance is also difficult to obtain via CLCs and Legal Aid. This Research Report was undertaken to uncover why this is so.
