How to Apply - Volunteer Legal Assistants

 

Update April 2022

Now that our Client Intake Team is working in person in the office again, we have re-assessed our volunteer intake and training plans. The details below have changed.

 

Rosters and shifts

The rosters are Summer, Autumn, Winter and Spring. You need to work the same shift/s each week throughout a roster. You can change your shifts for each new roster as your uni timetable changes.

During your first 12 days, you need to work full days. After your first 12 days, we prefer you to work full days, but if that is not possible, then a split shift - 2 half days - is acceptable, subject to shift availability.

Shifts are Monday to Friday 9.30am-12.30pm and 1.30pm-4.30pm (except closed Wednesday morning).

 

Volunteer Intakes

Any details such as exact dates that are missing from the information below, are not yet known, sorry. Unless otherwise stated below, when an intake opens for applications, we guarantee a minimum 3 week application period, and after that, applications may close without notice as soon as sufficient suitable applications are received.
