    Youthlaw drop-in legal clinic

    Drop-in legal clinic where you can see a lawyer and receive free legal advice from 2-5pm (arrive before 4.30) on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. No appointments are needed. Recommend that you call on 9611 2412 and speak to a lawyer before coming in to our drop-in clinic so that we can try first to help you over the phone.

    If you come in to the clinic, you will first be seen by Frontyard Youth Services who complete the initial intake process. Frontyard is a service which assists young people who are homeless or are at risk of homelessness, and because of this, they may ask you if you need assistance with issues other than legal issues.
