Jobs & Volunteers
There are currently two exciting solicitor positions vacant. See here for more information.
Redfern Legal Centre opened its doors in 1977 with one paid staff member, barely any money and lots of volunteers with experience, enthusiasm, passion, commitment and a vision for the provision of free legal advice to the community. Over 30 years later volunteers still play an integral role in RLC's work. We simply could not provide the service to the community we do without the help of our volunteer solicitors, legal assistants, practical legal training students, and pro bono partners and firms.
- Position vacant: PLT Placement (Volunteer) – Housing Law and Homelessness Prevention. Redfern Legal Centre is seeking an enthusiastic Practical Legal Training Placement (minimum three days per week) to support the work of solicitors and advocates.
- Volunteer Solicitors: Applications are now open for volunteer solicitors to assist in RLC's evening advice clinics. Due to the high number of applications we receive, we will only contact you should a suitable opportunity arise.
- Volunteer Legal Assistants: November intake now open. Applications close: 9am, Tuesday 31 October 2017.
- University of Sydney Social Justice Legal Clinic: Enrol as a Volunteer Legal Assistant (see above) for one day per week for a semester, and earn course credit.
Redfern Legal Centre supports Equal Employment Opportunity principles in the selection of volunteers and staff. If you require some adjustment to the workplace to enable you to meet the selection criteria, please contact the Communications & Volunteer Manager on 9698 7277 or firstname.lastname@example.org for a confidential discussion of what can be done to accommodate your request.
Please let us know if there is anything about you that may cause an issue to arise under the Legal Profession Uniform Law Act (NSW) No 16a. For instance, please note section 121 of Legal Profession Uniform Law (disqualification or conviction for serious offence) and any necessary approvals required.
