This is a unique opportunity for a solicitor to contribute to a community legal centre.
Consumer Credit Legal Service (WA) (CCLSWA) is a vibrant community legal centre which specialises in providing advice and representation in the areas of consumer credit, consumer law, and general banking and finance law.
CCLSWA also provides financial literacy education seminars to the public, legal education seminars to other advocates; and takes an active role in policy and law reform, in these areas.
As a not-for-profit legal service, CCLSWA offers attractive benefits to its employees: a genuine work/life balance; varied and challenging work; a supportive team environment; and the opportunity to give back to the community.
CCLSWA relies heavily on the assistance of law student and graduate volunteers. CCLSWA solicitors work closely with the students and graduates in a supervisory capacity, and as a result, contribute to the development and education of the volunteers.
