Position Type: Volunteer | Start Date: April 2023 | Where: Melbourne
Join the board of a not-for-profit legal service and play an integral role in pioneering new, innovative ways to improve access to justice through social enterprise, practical legal education, technology, and human-centred design.
There is an unmet need for legal assistance
Each year, over 600,000 Australians cannot access the legal assistance they need. And even those who are able to access legal assistance can struggle, with legal services commonly delivered in ways that can be difficult for regular people to understand.
We provide free, online legal assistance to people who can’t access it
We are a registered charity and social enterprise that envisions a world where everyone can access justice. We work towards our vision by providing free legal assistance to the community through an online platform, which is powered by law students seeking practical legal opportunities, and funded through university student programs.
