Tell me about CLCs

Community Legal Centres (CLCs) are not for profit, community-based organisations that provide free legal advice, casework and information and a range of community development services to their local or special interest communities. Some CLCs also advocate for law reform or conduct test cases where laws are operating unfairly or are unclear.

CLCs’ work is targeted at people experiencing or vulnerable to disadvantage and those with special needs, and in undertaking matters in the public interest. CLCs have been advocating for a rights-based approach and equitable access to the justice system in Australia for over 40 years.
