The legal clinics
Street Law meets clients at our ‘Outreach Legal Clinics’ at various locations around Perth. We do not see clients at our office. The legal clinics are held at the same place and time each week or fortnight, and take place at locations (‘host agencies’) already providing services to homeless or vulnerable members of the community.
The host agencies are Ruah, St Pats, Passages, Tranby, and Karnany. Click here to view details.
Only one solicitor and one volunteer will be required at a legal clinic. You will be asked ahead of time to attend a clinic. All other volunteers on the day will conduct case work at the office.
Information about legal clinics is found at Part 5 of this module.
Case work at the office
For those who attend legal clinic, after the legal clinic finishes you will return to the office to finalise any outstanding matters from the clinic and to begin case work.
Information about case work is found in Part 6 of this module.
End of day meeting
Towards the end of the day you will need to meet with the supervising solicitor to have your case work checked. The time that this occurs is usually at 4:00pm, and everything must be completed by 5:00pm.
More information about the end of day meeting can be found in Part 7.2 of this module.
How do I know who the supervising solicitor is?
The supervising solicitor is who every volunteer/secondee directs questions or queries to that day, and who they will report to at the end of day meeting.
The supervising solicitor will change depending on the day. You will be told at the start of the day who the supervising solicitor is.
