Solicitors at Duncan Lewis will be taking part in the London Legal Walk on 18th May 2015 to raise funds for London’s legal centres. (30 April 2015)

Duncan Lewis, Main Solicitors, Solicitors at Duncan Lewis will be taking part in the London Legal Walk on 18th May 2015 to raise funds for London’s legal centres.

Duncan Lewis will be walking the London Legal Walk 2015 with the Lord Chief Justice and thousands of lawyers on the 18th May 2015 to raise funds for the London Legal Support Trust which funds Law Centres and pro bono agencies in and around London and the South East.

Funding for legal advice centres has reduced since the recession, coupled with constant cuts to Legal Aid mean that vital legal services for those most in need are becoming ever increasingly more limited. Because of this charity and philanthropy have increased in importance for supporting those in need of aid for humanitarian or social welfare legal advice .

The London Legal Walk raises essential funds to aid that cause.

The London Legal walk is a 10km circular route, starting at the the London Legal Support Trust desks in Carey Street (near Chancery Lane) and ending in at the same location.

Funds raised from the event are used support free legal advice charities in London and the South East by walkers gaining sponsors and then law firms, chambers and companies add to that with matched funding or donations.

Duncan Lewis took part in last year’s London Legal Walk which marked the 10th anniversary of what has become the “largest annual gathering of lawyers and the judiciary in the world”.

Last year over 8,200 people joined members of the legal profession, including the Lord Chief Justice, the President of the Supreme Court, the Master of the Rolls, leaders of the Bar Council, the Law Society and CILEx, as well as the Attorney General, the DPP, top judges and many more in the crucial fundraising event.

Anthony Okumah, Litigation Director said about the event; “We are doing it in order to support not-for-profit free legal advice agencies that are overwhelmed due to the drastic legal aid cuts"

Duncan Lewis Solicitors are raising donations through their Virgin Moneygiving fundraising page. Those wishing to provide donations and support for the walk through our fundraising page can do so by clicking here.
