FOR PEOPLE IN THE COMMUNITY EXPERIENCING DISADVANTAGE

We Have Moved

This office has relocated upstairs to 2nd floor of Main Street Arcade, 82 Grafton Street, Cairns.

VOLUNTEERING & WORK EXPERIENCE

The Cairns Community Legal Centre Inc (the Centre) offers volunteering for solicitors and university students. Why volunteer? Volunteers often find that it is rewarding to assist people in need. Making a contribution to the community is often a valuable experience. It’s also an opportunity to network, learn new skills and be exposed to a unique aspect of legal practice.

Solicitors

Solicitors may be engaged on a roster basis to provide legal advice in the areas of family, civil or crime. Solicitors are usually rostered on once every 3-4 weeks to provide advice in relation to an area of law (family, civil or crime) that they are familiar with.

University Students

Volunteer students may:

  • sit in on legal advice sessions (with the consent of the client)
  • assist with casework, community education programs and law reform campaigns
  • assist with legal research
  • establish contacts and network
  • find out what it’s like being a lawyer in a community organisation
  • acquire skills in general office procedure and protocol
