About Us

The Bayside Community Legal Service provides free legal advice, assistance, referrals, mediation services and community legal education.

Advice and assistance is provided by appointment on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday and on Monday nights..

Our Legal Team

We have one part-time Lawyer and more than 10 volunteer lawyers who come from diverse backgrounds and experience. All lawyers hold current Queensland Law Society Practising Certificates.

Our reception is run by our Coordinator together with volunteers who dedicate their time during the Monday night sessions to assist our centre. Our Coordinator and reception volunteers are not legally trained and so are unable to provide legal advice over the phone, but are equipped to provide general referrals to other agencies and organisations that may be able to assist with your matter.

We also open our door to Law Students who seek to gain experience in the practical side of the law whilst still undertaking their studies. All students are interviewed and trained accordingly to ensure they comply with our Centre’s policies, procedures and legal obligations.
