Fitzroy Legal Service - a community legal centre
Fitzroy Legal Service (FLS) is one of the oldest community legal centres in Australia, opening in 1972. FLS provides legal advice and casework services and plays a significant role in the areas of law reform and community legal education, which is closely bound up with the practice of preventative law, demystification of the law, self-help and empowerment.
FLS also has a long history of running public interest cases. The experiences from the casework practice inform the law reform and community legal education activities of the organisation.
