Volunteer lawyers do not have the capacity to take on matters, but, insofar as their knowledge and experience allows, can assist you in accessing the right authorities, lodging forms, and being referred to specialist community legal centres. There is no means or merits test to access the service.


  • Every Thursday 6 pm – 8 pm, and also,
  • The third Saturday of every month, 10 am – 12 pm.


This is a walk-in service ie. first-come-first-served and no appointment necessary
