Street Law: Community Legal Education Clinic (5176LAW)

This course provides students with a window into the world of community legal education. Community legal education is a critical skill for lawyers. Part of the work of every legal practitioner is to ensure that their clients understand the law and community education activities assist to hone this skill. Community legal education is also a vital service provided by community legal centres and legal aid commissions as well as by law firms. Students will engage in the process of developing materials on law-related subjects which are tailored to meet the interests of a particular community audience, in this instance secondary school students. The course provides opportunities for students to work with both local high school students and teachers, culminating in the making of presentations to school groups. NOTE: Information on application process is available at the LLB and JD Organisation sites on Learning@Griffith. Limited places are available in this course. Prerequisite: Students must be in their final or penultimate year of their JD or LLB degree program to undertake this course.
