Springvale Monash Legal Service is one of the oldest community legal centres in Australia, and provides free and confidential legal advice to members of our community who are experiencing disadvantage. We provide assistance to thousands of people annually. Our service also works to support the community through community development projects and legal education. We actively contribute to law reform through our advocacy work to address systemic disadvantage and redress power imbalances.
We are proud of our long and invaluable partnership with Monash University. This collaboration extends the capacity of our service delivery and provides future lawyers with practical experience in the community legal sector through the Professional Practice Unit.
We appreciate the support, interest and contribution of our members. We recognise the importance of a robust and diverse membership. Members help determine the future direction of SMLS and ensure we maintain our strong position within the community legal sector.
Everyone is eligible to be a member, and the best part is – SMLS membership is free.
