21 November 2019 Victorian Bar Pro Bono platform launched to increase access to justice

Icon Agency is proud to have sponsored the design and development of the Victorian Bar Association's new Pro Bono platform, recently launched by Attorney-General Jill Hennessy. 

Chris Dodds, Icon's Managing Director of Digital said, "Our agency is a passionate supporter of initiatives that improve citizen access to services and information – ones that transform engagement models through digital-first thinking. Our UX and developer teams worked hard to bring the Victorian Bar's vision to life, and we're confident the new platform will assist barristers to locate and manage their important pro bono work." 

The new platform will allow the Supreme Court, County Court and Coroners Court to make targeted pro bono referrals directly to barristers. It is intended that all 2100 current practising Victorian Bar members will participate in the scheme, doubling the number of barristers who took up the previous scheme.
