The John Curtin Law Clinic provides advice and assistance to eligible small businesses based in Western Australia. Some of the things we help small businesses with include: identifying their legal options; carrying out legal research; preparing court documents; and providing referrals.

Our mission is to enhance the education of Curtin law students and improve access to justice through supervised professional experience, and we do this by:

  • Creating opportunities for students to engage in professional activities in a supervised, clinical legal education environment;
  • Providing legal aid to small businesses;
  • Encouraging students to critically reflect on their roles and responsibilities as future members of the legal profession; and
  • Giving students training and development opportunities to develop their professional skills.
