family law clinic

Every Family Law Clinic is managed by a member of the local community:

The Family Law Clinic is intended to become a nucleus of assistance to the communities in which they operate. In order to achieve this the Family Law Clinic Trust will identify appropriate candidates within the respective communities to launch and manage The Family Law Clinic in their area.

The Family Law Clinic Trust will train the selected prospects in paralegal services, counseling and basic business skills including computer training, marketing and administrative functions. It is our objective to empower the community throughtheir inclusion in the functioning of The Family Law Clinic.

The Family Law Clinic Trust will support the manager of the clinic by placing legal clerks in each clinic that will assist with the processing of cases and act as the liaison between the host organisation and the clinic itself.

Additional support will be afforded by means of hands-on ongoing mentorship from senior members of The Family Law Clinic Trust with the objective of optimising the efficiencies of each clinic.

As a satellite service to the community the Family Law Clinic will offer the community the same type of legal and business training as the manager of each clinic. This will be a low cost training program that will provide specified skills to unemployed individuals thus giving them greater opportunity for meaningful employment.The Family Law Clinic operates in close association with DreamWorker, a non-profit organisation that finds employment for people in compromised communities, and in this way our trained individuals have access to potential employers.
