Parramatta. New location for legal services

The University of Western Sydney's Parramatta Community Justice Clinic (PCJC), a practical legal training program which provides free professional legal information and referral services to the people of Greater Western Sydney, will relocate to the Parramatta Local Court. Professor Michael Adams, head of the School of Law, at UWS, said the new location is right at the heart of where access to the service is needed most. The PCJC is staffed by UWS law students under the close supervision of practicing solicitors and is utilised by disadvantaged members of the community who cannot afford legal advice. The PCJC is an initiative of the University of Western Sydney in partnership with Macquarie Legal Centre, the NSW Department of Justice and Attorney General, and Parramatta City Council. It is also strongly supported by members of the Parramatta and Greater Western Sydney legal profession, local businesses and community groups.
