Parramatta. UWS law students offer free advice

The Parramatta Community Justice Clinic (PCJC), run by University of Western Sydney law students, will be launched today, within the Department of Justice and Attorney General, at the Parramatta Justice Precinct, in the Parramatta CBD. It is an initiative of UWS in partnership with the NSW Department of Justice and Attorney General, Macquarie Legal Centre and Parramatta City Council and is supported by members of the Parramatta and Greater Western Sydney legal profession, local businesses and community groups. The Federal Department of Education Employment and Workplace Relations through its Diversity and Structural Adjustment Fund have provided funding for the initiative. The PCJC, which is under close supervision of practicing solicitors from Macquarie Legal Centre, offers free legal assistance and support to members of the Greater Western Sydney community who cannot afford legal representation.
