YELC encourages experienced solicitors with a current NSW practicing certificate to apply to volunteer.
Volunteer solicitors assist YELC by training, participating and supervising the students & volunteers at the center.
As well as providing a free legal service, the Centre aims to provide a training platform for volunteer Paralegals and students. The students take initial instructions from clients and convey these to the solicitor. This exchange is a valuable one for the students, and can be useful for you. It is an opportunity to talk through the instructions and the possible advice, and a chance for research and analysis before going to the client. The student then accompanies the solicitor when they give the legal advice to the client.
