Services we offer

We offer a broad range of services as part of the function of the clinic. Under the supervision of qualified lawyers, our students conduct interviews, manage cases, check facts, develop an understanding of ethics and undertake legal research and analysis to support your case.

Why is it free?

Excellence requires practice, and experiential learning – learning by doing – is an essential part of legal training at Deakin Law School.

Our law clinic offers students the opportunity to build the legal skills that underpin their academic training, so they emerge from study job ready.
