Individuals requiring legal help can approach two of Justice Connect's programs.
Our Referral Service aims to fill the unmet legal need in society that is created when Legal Aid and Community Legal Centres are unable to assist. Using our longstanding relationships with barristers, law firms, government and the community legal sector, we are able to quickly and effectively match those seeking help with expert pro bono legal support best suited to their needs.
Justice Connect’s Self Representation Service aims to ensure that they have information on court processes, legal advice on how to conduct their case, and legal assistance in completing court forms and documents. With this assistance, unrepresented people are empowered to overcome the hurdles in resolving their matters.
Frequently, people experiencing disadvantage are forced to attend court without a lawyer in Fair Work and bankruptcy matters. The law and legal processes are complex and confusing, and these unrepresented individuals often struggle to keep their heads above water.
