Peninsula Community Legal Centre hosts four legal internships each Trimester for Deakin University students. The internships provide a opportunity for students to extend and deepen their theoretical knowledge of the law by working under supervision in a legal practice. The internships are primarily based in the Centre’s Family Violence Duty Lawyer Service at the Frankston Magistrates’ Court and our Fines Clinic Project.
Through our volunteer program, we offer many tertiary students the opportunity to observe and be part of a thriving legal practice that assists thousands of disadvantaged clients each year. We also offer placements to trainee lawyers undertaking their Practical Legal Training qualifications and, by arrangement with Deakin University, legal internships for selected students. Regrettably, due to resource constraints, we are not able to offer any additional student placements at present.
