We’re Turning 40!


Marrickville Legal Centre acknowledges the Gadigal and Wangal people of the Eora nation as the traditional owners of the land upon which this event takes place. We recognise that sovereignty was never ceded, and pay our respects to elders past, present and emerging.

Back in 1979 a small group of law students with a vision for better access to justice occupied a small room in the Marrickville Town Hall. Their aim was to provide free legal assistance to individuals in the local area, especially for the growing migrant community. Since then Marrickville Legal Centre has extended its reach beyond Marrickville and the Inner West, to Sydney’s South West, Southern & Northern suburbs – a catchment that covers over 1.5 million people. Not to mention two state-wide legal services!

Marrickville Legal Centre is proud to present its 40th Anniversary Gala to celebrate 40 years of achievement for our local community with:

  • The Hon. Michael Kirby AC CMG

  • Eric Avery

  • Parliament on King

  • Dabke performance

  • And more to be announced!

Reserve your ticket for this Friday 23 August and rub shoulders with MLC’s esteemed alumni, staff, members, volunteers, and friends as we celebrate the achievements of the Centre and individuals who paved the way for the community legal sector.

Join us for an evening that celebrates the legacy of Justice For Us All.

No person will be turned away for lack of funds.
