What is Deakin Law Clinic?
An award-winning community legal service, Deakin Law Clinic is based at Deakin Downtown in the Melbourne CBD.

- civil and commercial law
- employment law
- family law
- venture law
- criminal law.
Deakin Law Clinic units are Work Integrated Learning (WIL) experiences worth one credit point each. The units are available in all trimesters and have mandatory attendance requirements and an induction prior to commencement.
Who can apply?
This program is available to Bachelor of Laws, Master of Laws and Juris Doctor (JD) students.
Please refer to the handbook for eligibility requirements, including compulsory pre-requisite and co-requisite units.
Places are strictly limited. You must submit an online application and be shortlisted in order to complete this unit. It is your responsibility to ensure that taking a WIL unit contributes towards your course requirements, and will not prevent you from meeting your course rules.
