About this Unit
Street Law Clinic provides students with the opportunity to work with peers under the supervision of a Street Law solicitor to research, prepare, and deliver community legal education to partners including secondary schools and/or community organisations on legal topics chosen by these external stakeholders. Students will generate innovative resources to be added to the Street Law digital repository of resources available to the community. Community legal education is a core skill for all lawyers wanting to improve access to legal information for all members of the community. Students will collaborate with the Street Law solicitor and external stakeholders to identify the mode of delivery and content that best meets the stakeholder needs and context. Students will consolidate existing technical legal knowledge, learn new areas of law, develop advanced interpersonal and collaborative communication skills, and enhance their ability to explain complex legal information to diverse audiences.
