Southampton Legal Walk – Wednesday 18th September 2024

 

The Southampton Legal Walk is a 10km sponsored walk to raise vital funds for the provision of free legal advice in Southampton and Hampshire. 100% of the funds raised go directly to legal advice agencies in the local area.

By taking part, you will be walking shoulder to shoulder with fellow members of the Southampton legal community. Law firms, barristers’ chambers, advice agencies, in house legal departments, and university law groups will walk the route in unison, before enjoying a refreshing drinks reception provided by the wonderful College Chambers.

Demand for legal advice services has risen dramatically over the past year. The rising cost of living has heaped immense pressure on legal advice agencies who are struggling to cope with such unprecedented demand. We believe everybody should be able to receive legal advice when they need it most. By joining the Southampton Legal Walk, you can help to ensure the people of your community have fair access to justice, and the beneficiary agencies can keep the lights on and the doors open for the people who need them most.

The walk begins at 5pm from The Combined Court (SO15 2XQ) and ends at College Chambers (SO15 2ET) with drinks and nibbles.
