Description of Organisation

The Victoria Law Foundation (VLF) is a not-for-profit organisation which works to improve the justice system for all Victorians and build understanding of the legal system.

The VLF supports better justice through research, education and grants.

  • The VLF conducts research to uncover how people understand and navigate the law, assess services that support better justice, and identify community legal needs.
  • Their education and events team helps the public understand the legal system, provides students with access to information about the law and helps legal professionals better communicate their work.
  • New community legal initiatives and projects (such as the Public Interest Law Careers Guide) are funded through the VLF’s grants program.

Information for university students/graduates

Do you have a graduate program?

No.

What sort of volunteer/internship opportunities are available?

The Foundation runs an annual internship program for four interns a year, who are current LLB or Juris Dr students. The interns get experience working for a not-for-profit legal organisation, grow their networks and get behind-the-scenes exposure to a range of

alternative legal careers. Our interns get exposure to all areas of the Foundation’s work - research, education, grants and communications - and have the opportunity to visit some of Victoria’s most prestigious legal institutions and meet the people who work in them.
