The Feminist Legal Clinic is an Australian not-for-profit legal practice that focuses on providing legal support to feminist organisations and services and the women who access them. This may take the form of research to support campaigns and activism, help with law reform submissions, running cases with a human rights focus, supporting organisations with statutory compliance and assisting individuals by providing advice, advocacy and targeted referral.
The Feminist Legal Clinic is independent of government and free of corporate sponsors. We meet once a week at The Women’s Library in Newtown and attend regular appointments at the Women’s Family Law Court Support Service. Our principal solicitor has worked as a lawyer for over 20 years across a range of legal areas in government, private and community sectors and supervises all the work of the practice. We meet within an informal and family friendly environment with flexible hours to cater for the needs of clients and staff.
