RLC in the Media: New legal advice app launched for NSW international students
A new legal advice app, My Legal Mate, has been launched for international students in NSW.
Study International Staff report 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 was devised by 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," says Sean Stimson.
"Best of all, the information is provided in multiple languages, delivered in a face-to-face format that is friendly and accessible"
Students will be able to access the information free-of-charge, provided their educational institution is subscribed to the app.
