Careers & getting involved

Community legal centres (CLCs) offer the chance to perform rewarding social justice and human rights work in a dynamic environment. Working in a community legal centre is about making a real difference to people’s lives through the law.

Working in a CLC provides opportunities to be involved in a range of justice work including legal advice and representation, community legal education and policy and law reform work aimed at developing a fairer legal system that better responds to the needs of the disadvantaged.

As well as a broad range of stimulating and challenging work, positions in the community legal sector can offer flexible work hours, regular professional development opportunities and generous charity tax benefits through salary packaging (essentially making part of your salary tax free).

Work in community legal centres requires dedication, innovation, resourcefulness, a commitment to excellence, great communication skills and a passion for social justice.

In addition to job opportunities, there are many other ways to get involved in the work of community legal centres, including secondments, volunteering, or joining a CLC management committee/board.
