Family Law, led by the editor Liz Walsh, is participating in The Legal Walk at 5.30pm on Monday 18 May organised by the London Legal Support Trust.

Funds raised for the London Legal Support Trust go towards voluntary sector legal agencies in London and the Home counties that employ solicitors or retain the services of solicitors as volunteers to provide free legal advice to poor or disadvantaged members of the public.

Last year 3,400 walkers raised over £350,000 for London's legal advice charities. Lord Phillips of Worth Matravers described The Legal Walk as "the social and legal event of the year".

The ten kilometre walk starts from the Royal Courts of Justice in London and proceeds along the Thames past the Tate Modern, the London Eye and the Houses of Parliament, around St James Park and finishes at the Law Society on Chancery Lane.

Walk organiser Bob Nightingale said: "Despite facing their own problems in this economic climate law firms and lawyers are showing once again how much they support their voluntary sector and the role of the not for profit sector in preventing poverty and disadvantage. That support more essential than ever as the need for help increases rapidly.

"With over 190 teams already registered to walk we are well ahead of this stage in any previous year and that is really encouraging. Hopefully we can better last year's £360,000 raised by 3,400 walkers."

Law Society President, Paul Marsh, said the response so far from solicitors has been outstanding.

"Justice starts on the high street with the agencies that are being supported by the sponsored walk. These lawyers are raising valuable funds to assist legal advice charities that help with real life crises and support people in dire need. It is a superb demonstration of support for the work of lawyers in the voluntary sector helping the most disadvantaged people in society", Mr Marsh explained.
