London Legal Support Trust (LLST), which supports free legal advice agencies in London and the South East, is delighted to announce the date for the biggest fundraising event in the legal calendar, the London Legal Walk.
The charity is excited to have the event returning to its usual summer fixture on Tuesday 28 June.
What is the London Legal Walk?
2022 sees the event return for the 18th year. It is a 10km sponsored walk through central London with walkers from across the legal community coming together to raise funds for frontline free legal advice services.
Teams have a choice of two routes. Both walk through some of the Capital’s most beautiful landmarks with the ever popular ‘Parks Route’ a perfect choice for those wanting to take in the city’s fantastic green space.
In 2021, the charity welcomed over 8,500 walkers who raised over £650,000 – a huge achievement given the challenges in-person events have faced since the start of the pandemic.

Why we walk
Nezahat Cihan, CEO of LLST says “We have been extremely grateful to all the firms, chambers, courts and in-house lawyers who have maintained the walk through the past, extremely difficult, two years. Now we hope to return to pre-pandemic levels when we had 15,000 walkers and raised nearly £1million.
“LLST remains committed to continuing to raise desperately needed funds for legal advice agencies in London and the South East. As the pandemic continues to dominate the headlines and impact our lives, these funds are needed more now than ever. “
The number of people badly affected continues to increase. Many are facing serious problems and are in desperate need of legal advice. Domestic violence, unemployment, homelessness, and debt are all contributing to the hardship faced by many in our community. They need the support provided by legal advice agencies resolve these issues
The work of LLST to raise funds through events is critical as these agencies continue their life-changing work. Together with the legal community, LLST can continue to support legal advice agencies in helping the most vulnerable to access justice.
