The Life of a Community Legal Centre Lawyer

Tuesday, 28 June 2022 - 6:00pm to 6:30pm

Community Legal Centres are independent community organisations that provide free legal services to the public. They exist to enable a strong collective voice for justice and equality, using the law as a tool to achieving this.

We are fortunate to be joined by two deeply experienced and dedicated CLC lawyers. The first of these is Linh Cao, Managing Criminal Lawyer at the Law and Advocacy Centre for Women, a CLC designed specifically for women who are in or at risk of entering the criminal justice system.

We are also lucky to be joined by Meghan Fitzgerald, who joined Fitzroy Legal Service in 2008 and for a number of years held the role of Manager of Social Action, Policy and Law Reform. In October 2020 she took on a new role of Special Counsel, leading the strategic litigation and campaign work. Meghan also sits on the Board of Harm Reduction Australia.

JOIN US to hear all the ins and outs of life as a CLC lawyer!
