St Kilda Legal Service provides free and generalist legal service to vulnerable and disadvantaged people living in the Cities of Port Phillip, Bayside, Stonnington and the suburb of North Caulfield.
St Kilda Legal provides a generalist night service three nights per week: Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday, at 7-9pm. This service provides people in our community with legal advice on a broad range of issues including fines, criminal law, family law, family violence, employment law and other matters.
Our service also currently operates two specialist programs: the Drug Outreach Program and the Family Violence Duty Lawyer Program. In 2018, we will commence a new LGBTIQ legal outreach service located at the Victorian AIDS Council.
Finally, St Kilda Legal undertakes community legal education and law reform activities in our community. In 2017, this activity included work on public housing rights, family violence, the legal needs of the LGBTIQ community, and police accountability.
