Volunteering

Monday 26 Jun 2017

Who can do volunteer work experience?

The Cairns Community Legal Centre Inc (the Centre) offers volunteering for:

  • solicitors
  • university students

What do volunteers do at the Centre?

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.

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

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.
