Loddon Campaspe Community Legal Centre’s volunteer lawyers, law students and administrators help us to provide a much-needed service to our community.
Goulburn Valley Community Legal Centre (a division of Loddon Campaspe CLC) also relies on the generous contribution of volunteer solicitors.
Volunteer lawyers provide advice to members of the public at our Wednesday Night Service.
Loddon Campaspe Community Legal Centre encourages students from La Trobe University Law School to volunteer with our service. Each year we host up to six La Trobe University students undertaking their clinical placement as part of the Rural and Regional Justice elective. This provides students with exposure to the community legal sector, underlines the importance of social justice based legal practice, and promotes involvement in pro bono programs.
Volunteering in regional communities like Bendigo and Shepparton fosters positive mentoring relationships between students and local practitioners, and promotes opportunities for students to return to practice in the region after graduation.
Law students wishing to become volunteers should be aware that places are highly sought after. Students from universities other than La Trobe University are welcome to apply.
