A new legal advice app, My Legal Mate, has been launched for international students in NSW.
Study International Staff reports for Study International News.
The app was created specifically to help students who might be facing legal troubles or need some immediate legal advice.
My Legal Mate is the brainchild of solicitor Sean Stimson, who is head of Redfern Legal Centre's International Student Service in NSW.
"The app addresses four legal areas identified by students and service providers as having the most need - employment, housing, disputes with education providers and sexual assault. Best of all, the information is provided in multiple languages, delivered in a face-to-face format that is friendly and accessible," says Sean Stimson.
Students will be able to access the information free-of-charge, provided their educational institution is subscribed to the app.
