Inspired by the annual Blackburn Lecture in 2019, we are giving back to the community through a “Claire Naidu & Co Family Law Pro Bono Day” on Wednesday 19 June 2019.
The term pro bono comes from the latin phrase Pro bono publico and means “for the public good”. In the legal profession it refers to professional work undertaken voluntarily and without payment or low payment.
We have reflected on our pro bono work and are proud of our contribution to the community.
We have decided to create special event on Wednesday 19 June 2019 – “Claire Naidu & Co Family Law Pro Bono Day”
What does this mean?
We are offering pro bono family law appointments on 19 June 2019. We are taking applications from persons who wish to be considered for a pro bono appointment. The successful applicants will be contacted and appointments will be made for the Family Law pro bono day 19 June 2019.
