Join Us for the Oxford Legal Walk-TODAY at 5pm at SAID Business School!

by | Oct 14, 2016

****Correction: The Oxford Legal Walk will be starting at the SAID Business School at 5pm***

 

With the reduction in funds for legal aid and the increase in tribunal fees, access to justice remains illusory for many individuals in our own community.

Oxford Legal Assistance, the Oxford Human Rights Hub and Oxford Pro Bono Publico are partnering with Access to Justice Foundation to raise funds to ensure disadvantage people are able to access legal advice and services.

On Monday October 17, 2016 at 5pm we will be participating in the 10km walk. It begins outside the SAID Business School and then traverses the beautiful sites of Oxford city centre. Professor Kate O’Regan, the inaugural Director of the Bonavero Human Rights Institute will be participating and giving closing remarks at the end of the walk.

We encourage to join our team and support our walkers as generously as you are able to here. There is no need to sign up to be a walker, just come down and join us!

Half of the funds will be donated to Oxford Legal Assistance (OLA). OLA is part of the University of Oxford’s Law Faculty offering exclusive opportunity for undergraduate law students to become involved in pro bono legal work. It works with a local legal aid law firm, Turpin & Miller to help with immigration and refugee claims and Citizens Advice Bureau providing important legal research on key community issues.

Thank so much for your generosity and support. We look forward to seeing you at the walk!
