2021 Derby Legal Walk
Why we need your help
is a 10km sponsored walk around Derby city centre, which includes some of the most scenic and green spots the city has to offer. The money raised will fund vital local advice services across the Midlands, which provide legal advice on issues such as debt, housing, family law, domestic abuse and employment to those who cannot afford it.
Organised by the Derby and District Law Society and the Derby Junior Lawyers Division, this annual event will see participants from local law firms, chambers and in-house legal teams, as well as those who have a passion for access to justice, come together with local judges and members of the community to walk 10km and raise funds for front-line legal advice services across the region.
The 2021 Derby Legal Walk will return to the usual in-person format - government guidelines permitting - with walks taking place in cities across the UK.
The Derby Legal Walk returns at a critical time for the Midlands specialist legal advice sector, which has been greatly impacted by the pandemic. Many advice services have reported an unprecedented surge in demand from clients in desperate need of advice in areas such as debt, welfare, immigration, family, housing and employment law. Other services are lacking sufficient staffing and resources to deal with the level of enquiries, and severe financial problems could lead to their permanent closure.
We are encouraging as many teams as possible to take part in the Derby Legal Walk this year to help raise awareness and much needed funds for the free legal advice sector. These services provide essential help to vulnerable people in the community who often have no other means of getting legal advice, representation, or support.
