Volunteers present legal education programs to prisoners in justice centres and within the community across Geelong and Melbourne. Our aim is to provide inmates with the knowledge and skills needed to gain control in an environment where they may feel powerless and equip community members with the knowledge they need to proactively manage legal challenges. Volunteers have the opportunity to develop their legal knowledge and present high quality information in challenging, high pressure environments. Volunteer positions complement legal studies, offer a range of opportunities for leadership and are highly rewarding.
PLEA advertises for select roles as they become available and generally conducts entry level recruitment rounds twice a year. Vacancies and recruitment rounds are advertised on this website as well on our Facebook page. You are welcome to apply at any point in the year, your application will be saved on file and assessed as opportunities become available.
To apply please submit an application here. Applicants will be assessed based on suitability for the program and availability. Applications will be saved in our system and assessed as positions become available.
We also directly recruit for senior presenters, an opportunity for more experienced law students to be fast tracked for a leadership position within PLEA. Please use the same form to apply for these positions.
