Ambling for Justice

Legal Walk banner
We here at Nearly Legal don’t just sit around staring at the ever increasing backlog of cases to write up. Oh no. We do other things too. One of the other things some of us are doing is the London Legal Walk on Monday 20 May.

The aim of the walk is to raise funds for not for profit/free legal advice organisations. This year, the funds are more desperately needed than ever, for reasons that should be obvious to all, cuts in funds from Legal Aid, from Councils and other bodies, allied with increasing demand from prospective clients.

So, some of the NL team will be forming part of the longest, slow moving queue of lawyers, stretched over a central route, that London has yet seen (even longer than Central London County Court), ambling behind, albeit some way behind, Lord Judge – The Lord Chief Justice, Lord Dyson – The Master of the Rolls, and Lord Neuberger – President of the Supreme Court.

Naturally, we want your money. Donations very welcome to either of these teams:

If you are on the walk, say hello in the Knights Templar afterwards…
