General Legal Assistance & Information

About Us

Our Service is reliant on the participation of volunteers to provide our vital services.  Without volunteers, we would be unable to draw on the extensive base of skills and experience with which we provide quality legal assistance to women.

 

Volunteering with WLS can provide you with many rewards including an opportunity to enhance women’s access to justice, inclusion in our referral box and access to our free in-house training program and resources.

 

Evening Advice Sessions

 

The evening advice sessions staffed by volunteers are conducted every Monday and Wednesday from 6:00pm to 8:00pm.  Women are able to drop in during these times for legal advice.  No appointment is required.  Due to demand, advice is usually limited to appropriately 30 minutes.

 

Each evening advice session is staffed by volunteer lawyers and support workers.  Our support workers come from diverse backgrounds and are trainee lawyers, social workers, law students or social work students. The WLS roster is a monthly cycle and volunteers are allocated a regular evening for attendance.
