We have a large group of volunteers working at our Southport office each week who are either law students or volunteer solicitors.

We are indebted to the enthusiasm, talent and dedication of our volunteers. We sincerely appreciate that they give their time to make a difference at the Centre and in the local community.

In addition to our group of volunteers who regularly assist people in need, we are also seeking expressions of interest from solicitors who are interested in volunteering at our Tuesday walk-in night clinic.

If you are someone who wants to give back to the community, enjoys meeting people and assisting people from all walks of life, you are welcome to inquire about volunteering with us.

Law Student Volunteers

In conjunction with local universities, we run multiple law-student clinics throughout the year. These clinics provide law students with firstly, practical experience in the law but also introduces them to community legal centres and an insight into legal issues within the community.

We currently run the following law-student clinics:

  • Griffith University Community Lawyering Clinic
  • Bond University Practical Legal Placement Clinic
  • Bond University Community Law Clinic
  • Night Clinic Program (open to any law school university student)
  • Domestic Violence Information Desk Program (open to any law school university student)
  • Practical Legal Training students (criteria applies)

Please visit our Law Students page to find out more about these clinics and programs.
