In order to manage risks posed by the Covid 19 outbreak, until further notice the below Wednesday morning and evening advice clinics will take place by telephone rather than by face to face meetings. To access our legal advice clinics please telephone 4921 8666 during office hours.
The University of Newcastle Legal Centre’s Older Persons Legal Clinic offers free legal advice and assistance to people aged 60 years and over and to Indigenous people aged 50 years and over.
It is a community legal service staffed by lawyers and law students. The Older Persons Legal Clinic can offer information, referrals, advice and representation on such things as:
- Wills and planning for the future
- Family law
- Neigbourhood disputes
- Tenancy issues
- Disputes with government departments
- Elder abuse and care issues
Law students completing the University of Newcastle Practice Program staff the Older Persons Legal Clinic under the supervision and guidance of a trained lawyer.
When you attend the Older Persons Legal Clinic you will initially meet with a law student, then with our in-house solicitor who may be able to provide you with legal advice in your matter. If we cannot assist you, we will refer you to someone who may be able to help.
