Community Legal Services

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.

Monash Oakleigh Legal Service

The Monash-Oakleigh Legal Service (MOLS) is a partnership between Monash Law School and Victoria Legal Aid.

Springvale Monash Legal Service

SMLS is a community organisation providing free, confidential legal advice to all members of the community. Since the emergence of community legal centres in the 1970s, the philosophical basis of SMLS has been the provision of accessible legal assistance and information, community legal education and law reform to disadvantaged members of the community.

Family Law Assistance Program

The Family Law Assistance Program is a self-help clinical legal service designed to assist people involved in Family Court litigation who do not have legal representation. It is administered by Monash University and funded by the Commonwealth Attorney General's Department.

The program aims to provide information on family law procedure, mediation and other forms of dispute resolution and the impact family breakdown can have on those involved.
