 Azrights IP Team To Participate In The London Legal Walk

Azrights Intellectual Property Team To Participate In The London Legal Walk

May 6, 2015

The London Legal Walk is an annual event that brings together lawyers from all practice areas. Lawyers from solicitors firms and barristers chambers, in house legal teams, charities, companies, magazines, and more, of all levels of seniority will be taking part in support of the London Legal Support Trust charity. This year the walk will be led by the Lord Chief Justice, Lord Thomas, and Master of the Rolls, Lord Dyson, and will include walkers from 495 teams.

Funds are raised to support free legal advice charities in London and the South East. Walkers are expected to gain sponsors and then many law firms, chambers and companies add to that with matched funding or donations. Some noted participants include Allen & Overy, Baker & McKenzie and LexisNexis. This year, the Headline National Gold Sponsor is The Law Society.

We at Azrights support this cause because in reality, not everyone has access to justice. Apparently two-thirds of the UK population don’t know how to get legal advice and 13 million people who live in poverty can’t afford to pay for legal support. The London Legal Support Trust works with a variety of charities to provide services.

On Monday 18 May 2015 from 17:30, the Azrights team will be joining numerous other firms and charities to complete the walk. The team will be walking 10K beginning and ending at the Royal Courts of Justice on Carey Street.

This being the 11th anniversary of the walk, it is hoped to exceed the record £560,000 raised last year!
