Lawyers to walk 10k in aid of free legal advice centres

The eighth London Legal Walk is set to kick off on the 21 May, with hundreds of members of the legal profession coming together to raise money for free legal advice centres.

The walk, organised by the London Legal Support Trust, will be led by top members of the profession including the Lord Chief Justice, Lord Judge; the Master of the Rolls, Lord Neuberger; and the Attorney general Dominic Grieve QC MP.

Almost 30 organisations have registered so far with more than 2500 walkers, which include a cohort of law firms, barristers’ chambers and other legal entities.

Last year saw more than 5000 people walk the 10k, raising almost £500,000 for law centres and specialist legal advice agencies that provide their services through a mixture of legal aid and local authority funding and charitable donations.

The walk is also supported by a host of organisations including the Law Society, the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives (CILEX), the General Council of the Bar, Her Majesty’s Courts Service and Tribunals Service and LawWorks.
