Project: Research

Project Description

For more than thirty years, Community Legal Centres have provided advice, representation and advocacy for people who otherwise would have difficulty gaining access to justice. The project explores the historical and continuing importance of Victoria s Community Legal Centres in terms of access to justice, law reform and social policy. This includes understanding their national and international context, their role in building greater trust in the legal system, and their impact as an influential training ground for many legal practitioners. By providing the first book-length study of this important movement, this study will also examine one of our most important and enduring examples of voluntarism and community development.
