In the Community
Shine Lawyers Community Program
At Shine Lawyers we’re everyday people who work hard to support our families and the communities where we work and live. Its people and communities that stand at the heart of everything we do and we understand how important it is to play our part. We protect the rights and values of communities and lend a hand wherever we can. Whether it means rolling up our sleeves to help out, providing donations and volunteers, sponsoring events and organisations, everything we do is focused on delivering our promise – righting wrongs, that’s where we shine.
Shine Lawyers Community Programs aim to:
- Promote and stand up for positive social values within the communities we work in
- Provide benefit and build relationships within the local areas we work in
At Shine Lawyers, we look for opportunities to support community events and organisations which share our values and make a positive difference to the communities that our clients and staff represent. We seek to work with likeminded people who are passionate about enriching the lives of local communities. Whether it’s our sponsor partnerships, development of preventative education programs or pro-bono work, these initiatives help us to give back to the Australian communities we serve.
Shine Lawyers Community Prevention & Education
Shine’s own preventative law expert Adair Donaldson is the creator and facilitator of our prevention education program used by national sporting bodies, schools, community organisations and employers to raise awareness with various groups such as youth about the legal consequences of reckless social behavior. The program builds on the firm’s commitment to protecting the values and rights of our communities and our promise – righting wrongs, that’s where we shine.
