Youth Law

Victoria's state-wide young people's community legal centre

What we do: Youthlaw is Victoria's state-wide young people's community legal centre.

Youthlaw aims to:

Provide legal advice and casework services to young people aged up to 25 years of age

Undertake proactive legal casework that assists young people to exercise their rights

Conduct education programs around legal rights and responsibilities for young people,

Provide advice and information about young people's legal rights and responsibilities to advocates for children and young people and the wider community

Advocate on justice policy issues for young people

Support lawyers and legal advocates who regularly act for young people, by providing research, training and policy development in matters of children's rights

Involve young people in real decisions about how they want their legal centre to run
Youthlaw is an exciting and innovative partnership between private legal service providers and community legal centres to share resources, knowledge and enthusiasm.

Youthlaw fills a significant gap in the provision of free legal services to the community.

The project partners are Blake Dawson Waldron, the North Melbourne Legal Service and the Federation of Community Legal Centres.

We can answer questions about:

Getting around - rules for riders and drivers

Public transport - dealing with transit police, inspectors and fines

Police - your rights, going to Court, what to do about unfair treatment

Security Guards - when can they search you and your bags?

Alcohol and drugs - smoking, marijuana. What does the law say?

Family issues - your parents are breaking up, who listens to you?

What to do about violence or abuse at home - when can you leave home?

Relationships - laws about sex, becoming a young parent and personal safety

Schools - suspension, expulsion, harassment from other students

Discrimination - what is it, when is it unlawful and what can you do about it?

Financial support - what if Centrelink says you are not eligible for benefits or cancels your benefit?

Working - do young casual workers have any rights?

Youth law is a free legal service for young people. Your issue and options will be discussed confidentially. We will not tell others what you tell us, unless you want us to.
