Staff and Students Walk for Justice

Staff and students from the University of Wolverhampton Law School took part in the Birmingham Legal Walk, on the evening of Monday 6 June 2016, starting at No5 Chambers, Birmingham. 

The University of Wolverhampton Law School was amongst 22 other teams consisting of chambers and legal professionals, law firms, and education institutions, who walked 10km through the streets of Birmingham.  They are raising funds for free legal advice charities in Birmingham and around the Midlands.

The team (pictured below) completed the walk in a little over two hours, with around 400 other walkers.

Team organiser Beverley Rizzotto said: "So far, we have raised over £400 for the Midland Legal Support Trust, in the fight for access to justice. A big thank you to those who kindly sponsored the team and donated. There is still time to donate. It would be great if we could reach our target of £500!"

More photos from the event can be found on the Midland Legal Support Trust website and on the MLST twitter feed. So far, over £11,000 has been raised for advice services which provide free legal advice and support for those who are most in need.
