Lawyers walk tall in support of free legal advice

The Yorkshire Legal Support Trust is again running its highly successful series of walks in Yorkshire to raise money in support of free legal advice.

The York Legal Walk took place under blue skies earlier this week, led by Christopher Legard, high sheriff of North Yorkshire, and David Barraclough, president of the Yorkshire Union of Law Societies.

The Sheffield Legal Walk is scheduled to take place on 8 May and the Leeds Legal Walk on 14 May.

Both begin at 5.30pm, with registration from 5pm. Full details of the walks in support of free legal advice can be obtained from the Yorkshire Legal Support Trust website and all members of the profession in Yorkshire are urged to show their support by taking part in either or both of the walks.

The Yorkshire Legal Support Trust awards grants to charities that give free legal advice to help and support the most vulnerable people in society who are unable to access it. The trust is part of the London-based Access to Justice Foundation.
