The organisational structure of the State Branch of RSL Victoria comprises of the following:
Unlike a solicitor, an RSL Military Compensation Advocate is someone who does not necessarily hold a qualification as a paralegal or a law degree.
An advocate is one who “pleads in favour of another’s case, supports or urges by argument, defends, vindicates or espouses a cause”.
In the context of the RSL, a Military Compensation Advocate assists both serving and ex-serving members of the Australian Defence Force (ADF) and their widows to lodge claims for compensation to the Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA).
We invite all Levels of Advocates to apply, training will be provided through the Advocacy Training & Development Program (ATDP) in conjunction with the training the candidate will be mentored by a Senior Military Compensation Advocate.
