Description

Pro Bono Partnerships and Models: A Practical Guide to What Works is a resource that provides practical information on what works well in collaborative pro bono projects. Click here to access  the free PDF.
 

What Works was created by the National Pro Bono Resource Centre and is also available free of charge as an easily navigable e-book using Thomson Reuters' ProView e-book platform.

Drawing on the expertise of a broad range of stakeholders with experience in the delivery of pro bono legal assistance, this resource will be useful for those providing pro bono legal services (including law firms of all sizes, pro bono clearinghouses and referral schemes, barristers, in-house and government lawyers, and law schools), and those seeking pro bono assistance (including community legal centres and other not-for-profit organisations). It provides tips on how to attract pro bono partners and maintain effective partnerships.

What Works will also be of interest to everyone in the legal assistance sector, given the increasing complexity and sophistication of the delivery of pro bono legal services in Australia. It identifies the features of effective models used to deliver pro bono legal assistance, and includes illustrative case studies. The included models are:

  • Case referral
  • Clinics
  • Outreach
  • Secondments
  • Fellowships
  • Co-counselling
  • “Secondary consults” or “phone a friend” assistance
  • Telephone, video conferencing, online and mobile technology
  • Law reform
  • Assistance to non-legal not-for-profit organisations and charities
  • Community legal education
  • Non-legal assistance
  • International pro bono
