Fitzroy Legal Service - a community legal service
Fitzroy Legal Service (FLS) is one of the oldest community legal centres in Australia, opening in 1972. FLS provides casework to clients in our catchment area and plays a significant role in the areas of law reform and community legal education, which is closely bound up with the practice of preventative law, demystification of the law, self-help and empowerment.
FLS also has a long history of running public interest cases. The experiences from the casework practice inform the law reform and community legal education activities of the organisation.
The Fitzroy Legal Service has recently collaborated with Lawyers for Animals to provide an Animal Law Clinic.> Find out more
