The University of Newcastle Legal Centre (UNLC) is the centrepiece of the Newcastle Law School’s clinical program. Here students engage with the community and with legal professionals to develop practical skills in the application of the law.

The Legal Centre offers a range of services to members of the public, including free legal advice and assistance, representation, law clinics and community education seminars. All of the services provided by the Legal Centre are overseen by our in-house lawyers and delivered together with law students.
