Description

Help us understand how we can help you!

Deakin Law School invites you to share in determining how Deakin Law Clinic can assist you in your critical pro bono work. Please join our clinical legal educators for an informal round-table discussion so that they can learn from you; they want to know how Deakin Law School and the Deakin Law Clinic can support you in the delivery of pro bono legal services and education to the Victorian Community.

Following a long history of providing student interns to those delivering pro bono assistance in Victoria, Deakin Law School has embarked on its first in-house clinical legal education programme. Since its establishment in June 2016, Deakin Law Clinic has become a community legal service, providing advice and assistance to vulnerable clients in relation to civil, criminal, employment and family law matters, as well as information and assistance to the start-up community.

To offer the best support to providers of pro bono legal services, Deakin Law Clinic needs a better understanding of the pro bono landscape in Victoria. In our half day session, supervising legal practitioners, Syd Balachandran and Rebecca Tisdale, along with Director of Teaching, Karen Powell will provide an introduction to the Deakin Law Clinic and then explore issues such as:

  • the identification of gaps in pro bono assistance in Victoria;

  • effective referral processes and collaboration in the pro bono space;

  • effective community legal education and information; and

  • research and other partnerships.
