Domestic Family & Sexual Violence Lawyer


An opportunity is available to join Marrickville Legal Centre’s dynamic team delivering better and fairer outcomes for people who experience Domestic, Family & Sexual Violence.


Applications for this position are now closed


Role overview


Marrickville Legal Centre offers free legal advice and assistance to the community of the inner-west, south-west, southern suburbs of Sydney, and beyond. There are 1.5 million people living in our key catchment: that’s 30 percent of Sydney’s total population. 


Marrickville Legal Centre solicitors provide access to justice through the provision of legal services, law reform and community legal education, particularly for people who are disadvantaged by their social and economic circumstances. 


This position is specifically for the provision of legal services (legal advice, casework, and representation) in the area of family law, for victim-survivors of family, domestic and sexual violence.  

Given the multiple and complex issues confronted by people affected by family violence, this position may also at times be required to be able to provide basic information and advice in civil law matters related to an individual’s experience of family violence, e.g. apprehended domestic violence orders and victims compensation.  


The position will be based primarily at MLC’s Marrickville office. This position will also involve regular travel to outreach locations across metropolitan Sydney, and out-of- hours work to assist in delivering community legal education and regular evening advice clinics.
