Volunteer Opportunities

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 40 years later volunteers still play an integral role in RLC's work. We simply could not provide our services to the community without the help of our volunteer solicitors, legal assistants, practical legal training students, and pro bono partners and firms.

  • 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 AssistantsClick for details of the role and all intakes. The February General Intake is now closed. One of our Winter 2019 Intensive intakes is currently open for applications.
  • University of Sydney Social Justice Legal Clinic: Enrol in Social Justice to be a Volunteer Legal Assistant, and earn course credit.
  • Communications Placement: Assist RLC's community education staff with video editing and other tasks, 4 hours per week, for five-six months.

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 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.
