The University of Newcastle Legal Centre

LEGAL ADVICE FOR THE COMMUNITY AND HANDS-ON EDUCATION COMBINE

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.

  • Legal Services for the Community
  • Clinical Legal Education

Law School academics, Sher Campbell and Shaun McCarthy, see the UNLC as a way to open pathways for students by developing both their intellectual and practical skills.

"We're not just interested in churning out lawyers; we educate the whole student and that's what we do right from the beginning." Sher Campbell

"First day on the job, they're up on their feet in the court advocating for a client." Shaun McCarthy
