About this Unit
Clinical Legal Placement allows you to attend the Parramatta Community Justice Clinic (PCJC) or a community legal centre for five (5) days. Places are limited and enrolment is based on merit with progression status also considered. This unit provides you with an invaluable opportunity to use and reflect on your study of law in an interactive, legal service environment. Under the supervision of a legal practitioner you will work on advice, casework, policy or project work, as required by the PCJC or relevant centre. You will examine the practical application of the law and the interaction of law, facts, policy and ethical issues. You will be exposed to a system of self-analysis and self-criticism. You will be required to attend every day, record and reflect on your experiences, and submit several short papers of various kinds.

Special Requirements - Legislative Pre-requisites

Students will need a criminal record check and consent declaration if working with minors during their placement.
