Legal Aid Queensland’s Information and Advice Services area provides high-quality legal information, referral and legal advice services to vulnerable and disadvantaged Queenslanders over the telephone, face-to-face, at our regional offices, at correctional centres and via videoconference.
The division is currently hosting a hotline providing frontline legal assistance to clients engaged with, or seeking to engage with, the Royal Commission into Violence, Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation of People with Disability (the Royal Commission). This hotline forms part of the Disability Royal Commission Legal Service (DRCLS), which is a national service operated by Legal Aid Queensland, in conjunction with staff from National Legal Aid and National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Legal Services.
This is an outstanding opportunity for an experienced legal professional to deliver trauma-informed and accessible legal services to some of Australia’s most vulnerable persons. These services will be delivered as part of the DRCLS.
The role has a focus on providing advice and minor assistance to clients wishing to engage with the Royal Commission. The successful candidate may also be required to represent clients before public and private sittings of the Royal Commission.
