There are only 10 days to go until the Family Law team, led by the editor Liz Walsh, walk the Legal Walk at 5.30pm on Monday 18 May organised by the London Legal Support Trust.
The team's fundraising target is £2000 and to date they have raised just over £1800 including the Gift Aid tax supplement.

With 3,500 walkers, it has now been confirmed that the event will be the biggest gathering of UK lawyers ever in one place for one purpose.
The money raised will go towards specialist lawyers or caseworkers who can make a huge difference to the lives of the most disadvantaged people. They can prevent homelessness, sort out debts, and ensure that people are getting the correct benefits and community care support.
The ten kilometre walk starts from the Royal Courts of Justice in London and proceeds along the Thames past the Tate Modern, the London Eye and the Houses of Parliament, around St James Park and finishes at the Law Society on Chancery Lane.
Included in to the expected 3,500 walkers will be over fifty judges, over a dozen senior partners of firms and heads of chambers, three Law Commissioners and the First Parliamentary Counsel.
All walkers will receive a free drink at the end of the walk. There will also be a disco in the Knights Templar and entertainment at the Law Society including magicians and stilt walking jugglers.
