Eight thousand-plus lawyers took to the streets last night to take part in the 10th annual London Legal Walk.
The event, organised by the London Legal Support Trust (LLST), raised over £500,000 to support law centres and legal advice agencies in London and the south-east.
Walkers included the lord chief justice Lord Thomas of Cwmgiedd, the president of the Supreme Court Lord Neuberger, the attorney general Dominic Grieve QC and shadow justice minister Sadiq Khan.
Some 500 teams from law firms, in-house legal departments and chambers completed the 10km course, joining representatives from the Law Society, Bar Council and CILEx.
Starting at the Royal Courts of Justice, walkers and runners packed the streets along the Embankment, before turning up The Mall and Constitution Hill, through St James's Park before taking a turn around the Serpentine and back to the Law Society.
The event culminated with a street party in Carey Street, with fire jugglers, stilt walkers, living trees, a samba band and food/drinks stalls.
LLST chief executive Bob Nightingale said: 'The funds raised last night are vital to sustain legal advice centres in and around London.' Sponsors included the Law Society and City estate agents Frank Harris & Co.
The next LLST walk takes place in Brighton on 16 June.
