The Australian Pro Bono Manual is an indispensable source of sound advice and relevant information on pro bono best practice.
Pro bono legal work is considered a professional responsibility and benefits the lawyers, firms and clients involved. There are advantages, however, in a planned and coordinated approach — a structured pro bono program is key to establishing a sustainable pro bono culture in any firm.
The third edition of the Manual has been completely revised and updated, and includes information tailored to mid-sized and small firms. For large firms looking to refine or grow their pro bono practice, the Manual remains an essential reference point.
