Community Legal Centre (Launceston)
The Launceston Community Legal Centre (LCLC) is a not-for-profit incorporated association that provides free, non means tested legal advice and assistance to all members of the Tasmanian community. The LCLC consists of a small team of dedicated solicitors, advocates and administrative staff, providing services in the areas of general law, family law, employment law, welfare rights and disability discrimination. We also facilitate legal 'outreach' to rural, regional and remote communities and have a highly successful volunteer-based 'legal literacy' program. The aim of this program is to increase individual and community awareness and confidence around everyday legal issues by providing practical help with filling out forms, understanding documents, sorting out papers, dealing with authorities and generally protecting the rights of individuals.
For family law matters (both property settlement and arrangements for children), the LCLC can provide support in the form of legal advice, information and referral. Our partnership with the Family Relationships Centre is designed to enable separating parents to access direct legal services as they navigate the family dispute resolution process. We are also able to provide assistance drafting consent orders.
