Social Justice Lawyering Clinic (5064LAW)

Students are placed with LawRight (formerly QPILCH) for a day a week during the Trimester. Law Right is a non-profit, community-based legal service that coordinates the provision of pro bono legal services for individuals and community groups in Queensland. Its vision is for a just, fair and accessible legal system where no one is disadvantaged by a lack of resources, knowledge or ability. Students will process applications for assistance, under supervision. They gather materials, research the issues, identify the options and prepare recommendations for LawRight to consider. Course assessment includes students' workplace attendance and performance, a seminar and a reflective piece. Attendance at all clinic days and seminars is mandatory. NOTE: Enrolment in this course is by successful selection in the ballot process. Information on application process is available at the LLB and JD Organisation sites on Learning@Griffith.
