The London Legal Walk is an annual fundraising event that brings together the legal community to support free legal advice agencies. The funds raised go towards over 130 advice agencies in London and the South East, providing vital legal help to those who need it most.

GN Law Team’s Commitment

GN Law Team has been a proud supporter of access to justice for several years, participating in the London Legal Walk since 2015. We’ve helped raise thousands of pounds to support free legal advice agencies that empower people to navigate legal challenges.

Our team is passionate about making a difference, and we walk together, united in our commitment to equal access to justice. We believe everyone deserves the chance to fight for their rights, regardless of their background.

The London Legal Walk 2024

In 2024, GN Law celebrated the 20th anniversary of the London Legal Walk, walking alongside the Lady Chief Justice and thousands of lawyers. This year’s fundraising goal was to support the most vulnerable in society by ensuring their access to life-changing free legal advice.

Impact of Free Legal Advice

Free legal advice plays a crucial role in people’s lives. The story of Toni exemplifies the difference it can make. After losing his job due to Covid-19, Toni faced eviction and financial hardship. With the help of a free legal advice centre, he was able to secure the correct benefits and find suitable accommodation.
