Community Legal Centres primarily target their services for people who are ineligible for legal aid and who are unable to afford the services of a private lawyer. 

Most centres have eligibility requirements which you can check contacting the centre. 

Services include:

  • information and advice;
  • casework and minor assistance;
  • representation and advocacy;
  • community legal education;
  • policy and law reform.

Each community legal centre may offer different services, depending on the needs of the community.

The centre will not be able to assist you if it is already providing services to another party in a dispute. This is called a conflict of interest. In order to determine if there is a conflict of interest you may be asked a series of questions. If there is a conflict of interest, we suggest you contact another community legal centre, or another legal provider.
