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.
COVID-19 Vaccination requirement
Volunteers seeking to deliver programs in person in a prison or youth justice centre (most roles with PLEA) will be required to have received and provide proof of three doses of an approved COVID-19 vaccination. You will be asked to provide this at or prior to interview.
PLEA is currently recruiting for presenters for our programs working with young people in the Parkville Youth Justice Centre.
If you have previously applied and not received an application outcome, you will automatically be considered for this round.
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.
