Our Night Time Legal Advice Service (NTLAS) provides one-off legal advice and referral on all areas of law. Please note: NTLAS will commence weekly from Tuesday 12 February 2013 at 6.00 pm.

The Centre also provides Clinical Legal Education for undergraduate Law students in partnership with the Australian National University.

Welfare Rights and Legal Centre engages proactively with all levels of government to address policy and law reform issues of concern to our client groups. We also work closely with not-for-profit and non-government organisations by participating in community forums, committees and networks to disseminate and collect information that assists the effective delivery of our services to our local communities.

We are dedicated to improving the community’s access to information and education about the law. We develop and deliver resources to build our community’s capacity through increasing knowledge about the law and legal rights.
