Supporting the Ipswich community.

Away from computer screens and textbooks, the LAW3478 Law Clinic course is offered at UniSQ's Ipswich campus and supervised by HUB Community Legal practice.

The elective gives third and fourth year Bachelor of Laws and Juris Doctor students the opportunity to have hands on legal experience while still studying.

School of Law and Justice Director (Clinical & Professional Experience) Dr Margaret Voight said the practical introduction to life as a practitioner of law is priceless for students nearing graduation.

"Students work with the HUB Community Legal team and assist some of the most disadvantaged clients in the community," Dr Voight said.

“For some of those clients, the clinic may be the only avenue for assistance, where other options have been exhausted, so it’s an incredible way to introduce students to many types of legal practice experiences from minor debt, succession, neighbourhood disputes or minor civil matters. It’s proved to be such a great way for them to also gain fresh insights into society and community expectations and legal practice requirements, and it truly enhances the theoretical knowledge they’ve acquired in their studies too,” she said.

UniSQ's Law Clinic creates real-world learning opportunities for up and coming legal practitioners, barristers and lawyers while offering tangible benefits to the local community. Discover how you can become apart of this exciting initiative by studying Law and Criminology at UniSQ.
