Volunteers and workshop placements

Legal Aid ACT encourages volunteers and workshop placements, although our capacity with these is limited.

The Legal Practices (Civil, Criminal & Family) give preference to qualified lawyers and students who are near completing their legal qualifications.

Applications for these placements will be considered once a resume has been forwarded to hr@legalaidact.org.au.

Resumes should include:

Your resume will be retained for a period of 3 months and considered for any non advertised placement opportunities, at the expiration of the 3 month period your resume will be destroyed.

Should you not be successful in obtaining a placement with Legal Aid ACT in the specified period, you will be required to resubmit your resume for further consideration.

Please note: Receipt of your resume will not be acknowledged.

If you have any further queries concerning this process please contact hr@legalaidact.org.au

Work experience

Legal Aid participates in the ACT Department of Education and Training Work Experience and Structured Workplace Learning (SWL) Program, however, due to privacy issues and the sensitive nature of many of our legal matters, the areas where school students are able to participate are limited.
