New Court Chambers will be taking part in the annual London Legal Walk on 16 May 2016, organised by the London Legal Support Trust. The walk covers 10km of London’s park and river footpaths, starting and finishing at the Law Society on Chancery Lane.
The London Legal Support Trust works to support law centres and legal advice agencies in London and the South East by providing them with grant funding alongside other forms of support. They do this by holding large fundraising events, most notably the London Legal walk, and then delivering the funds raised to the agencies where they are most needed through grant rounds. They offer their knowledge and experience of the sector to help the agencies to become more sustainable and help to partner them with law firms and chambers who want to help them ensure that the law is fair.
The London Legal Support Trust is part of a network of seven Legal Support Trusts across England and in Wales working with the Access to Justice Foundation to support pro bono and advice agencies, ensuring funds can be distributed where needed most throughout England and Wales.
The walk is a huge event for the Trust with previous events featuring over 8000 participants including the Lord Chief Justice and President of the Supreme Court.
We will be posting details of how to sponsor New Court Chambers as the event nears.
