Youthlaw drop-in legal clinic

We run a drop-in legal clinic where you can see a lawyer and receive free legal advice from 2-5pm (arrive before 4.30) on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. No appointments are needed.

We recommend that you call us on (03) 9611 2412 and speak to a lawyer before coming in to our drop-in clinic so that we can try first to help you over the phone.

If you come in to the clinic, you will first be seen by Frontyard Youth Services who complete the initial intake process. Frontyard is a service which assists young people who are homeless or are at risk of homelessness, and because of this, they may ask you if you need assistance with issues other than legal issues.

WHEN:           2-5pm Monday, Tuesday, Thursday & Friday (no appointment needed)

WHERE:        Frontyard Youth Services
                         19 King Street, Melbourne

Just got fined? Friday Fines Clinic

Youthlaw runs a Fines Clinic every Friday from 1-4.30pm providing free legal advice about unpaid fines to young people under 25.

The impact on young people of not dealing with fines can be significant, and can include an increase in the cost of the fines, negative engagement with the legal system, and enforcement actions (such as wheel clamping of cars, cancellation of a driver’s licence and registration, seizure of assets and imprisonment).

In our experience, young people often don’t understand the law or know where to go for help, and the fines systems can be difficult to navigate. Our Fines Clinic aims to assist you to understand the law in this area and to resolve your unpaid fines issues.

WHEN:           Fridays 1-4.30pm (no appointment needed)

WHERE:        Frontyard Youth Services
                         19 King Street, Melbourne
