Getting involved

We encourage volunteers to help us keep our community fair and our services running smoothly.

Law Students

Volunteering for us is a great way for law students to build practical legal skills whilst making a real difference in the community. You will assist with our phone advice and casework services, as well as perform general administrative duties.

We are proud to be a partner agency for ANU’s Public Interest Law Clinical Course, in which students undergo placements at various ACT community agencies and produce a research project for the benefit of that organisation.

Here is what one of our clinical volunteers has said about their experience:

‘Volunteering at the Consumer Law Centre has challenged me to engage with a wide variety of legal issues experienced by clients from all walks of society. My tasks vary from communicating directly with clients over the phone to research on specific questions of law. One of the most rewarding aspects of the role is being entrusted with the responsibility of conducting client phone interviews to determine whether their claim has legal merit, and how we can best assist them. The experience has instilled in me a confident and methodical approach to problem solving.’ – Tom Alder, 5th Year ANU Law student.
