Continuing Volunteer Roles


VOLUNTEER LEGAL ASSISTANT – MANLY LEGAL ADVICE SERVICE

Manly Legal Advice Service is looking for clerks to help run the front desk every Thursday night (6-8pm) and the occasional Saturday morning (10am-12pm).

We operate out of Manly Community Centre as a free walk-in service, staffed by volunteer lawyers who give clients basic legal advice on all areas.

You will be responsible for setting up and closing the service each night, receiving clients and assisting the lawyers with research if required. Depending on the number of interested volunteers, there may also be the opportunity to sit in on client sessions.

Local residents of the Manly area will be given preference as volunteers may be required to fill in on short notice.

 

If interested please email CV to manlylegaladvice@outlook.com
