Who we work with and how we are funded

Not-for-profit Law receives funding from member law firms, philanthropic institutions, government grants and donors. We also have our social enterprise, Not-for-profit Legal Training, that provides tailored training on a fee-for-service basis. Our member law firms assist in providing pro bono legal services to our clients, as well as providing in-kind support through secondments and access to resources. We also work in collaboration with academic institutions and not-for-profit sector peak bodies.
