Are you a law student who hasn’t followed Caxton on social media? There are plenty of opportunities in the works, so you should!
Volunteer student opportunities
Students play an essential part in the delivery of legal help to the people Caxton serves. We recruit for front desk students to act as our first point of call approximately once every six months. Generally, a minimum time commitment of one semester is required from volunteers.
We also recruit for Practical Legal Training students via our socials. There is generally a preference for people completing the 75-day placement.
Both of these roles are excellent entry points into the organisation with many of our staff having started off in one of these roles.
Caxton regularly advertises positions vacant on our social media.
If you don’t know about the plain-English, notoriously reliable resource that is the Queensland Law Handbook online then you are missing out. Current updates include a new chapter on Queensland’s Human Rights Act and shortly, Immigration Law, written by some of the best plain-language lawyers in Australia.
Caxton Legal Centre hosts the Justice in Focus Series, a set of regular public forums that enrich public debate on topics of local and national importance, in partnership with the law schools at Griffith University, Queensland University of Technology and the University of Queensland.
We’re happy to report that face-to-face events will kick off again soon so you can join us for a drink and a chat when you attend one of our panels.
Caxton works extensively with law students providing learning opportunities that put law into the real world. Law students who are interested in participating in a clinic program should contact the relevant academic within their law school, but if you’ve completed a clinic you might find your photo popping up on one of our social accounts.
