ABOUT US

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 over 2 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, prioritising individuals who have been affected by domestic and family violence.

Given the multiple and complex issues confronted by people affected by domestic and family violence, this position may also be required 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.

The essential skills of the role are set out in the attached Position Description. Sound knowledge of legislation relating to family law, Legally Assisted Mediations and the Federal Circuit and Family Court of Australia is essential.

This position is for 35 hours per week on a part time, permanent basis.

Application deadline: open until the suitable candidate is identified.
