Our volunteer lawyers provide legal advice in a range of areas during our Monday night advice sessions. These sessions run from 6:30pm to 9pm. We can allocate you to a particular area of law if this is what you prefer, and book in clients with legal issues you feel comfortable with. We run a rotating roster with volunteer lawyers providing advice about every six weeks, however, this can be negotiated depending on your availability.
We offer a facilitated co-meditation style of dispute resolution service. We team you up with another mediator to assist our clients with coming to a resolution about their issue.
We mediate small civil matters, separations involving property, and separations involving children.
We have a number of mediators on our panel and we rotate through a roster so you can gain hours in a number of mediations.
We also have FDRP accredited mediators as well as certified mediators.
Our volunteer students assist us with a range of tasks vital to keep our service running on a day to day basis. As a volunteer student you can expect to assist with research, casework, administrative duties, welcoming clients and conducting client intakes. We offer a diverse range of experience no matter where you are in your studies. We have a roster and can negotiate times depending on your availability.
