About Youthlaw

A free statewide community legal centre providing assistance to young people in Victoria

On this page

Youthlaw is a free statewide legal service for anyone aged 25 and under.

If you are 25 or older we are unable to assist you.

We also provide legal information to adults working with or assisting young people (parents/siblings/youth workers/social workers)

To access our helpline service, you can:

  • Call us: Monday – Friday | 9am – 5pm on (03) 9113 9500
  • Email us: legal@youthlaw.asn.au
  • Fill out our form (3-5 days turnaround)

When you call our helpline you will be assisted by one of our volunteers who will ask some questions about you and your situation. These questions are to help us determine what level of service you are eligible for. You will then be referred to one of our lawyers who will contact you, within 5 business days.
