Clinical legal education

As a clinical law school, the faculty is committed to providing the highest standard of legal education and training. As such, our students have the opportunity to obtain hands-on practical experience through our two community legal centres.

Developed more than 30 years ago, the Monash Law clinical legal education program for students was the first of its kind in Australia. Under expert supervision, students work with real clients and cases, learning vital skills relating to the practice of law while providing an important service to the community.

Objectives of the Clinical Legal Education Program

1. To provide Monash Law students with the opportunity to participate in real Legal Clinics under professional supervision.
2. To raise student awareness of matters affecting the legal rights of those clients attending the Clinics.
3. To enable students to participate in a range of law and social reform projects.
4. To assist students to participate in  research into the administration of justice and the provision of legal services to the community.
