Policy Advocacy Practice

Deakin Law Clinicā€™s  Policy Advocacy Practice at Deakin Law Clinic allows students to undertake real problem-based projects to address economic and social injustice. Each trimester, students are tasked with a unique policy problem and work in teams to explore and evaluate the limits of law and public policy in an effort to resolve it. Students produce real world outputs, including submissions to inquiries, reports, presentation materials and information sheets. Students in the Policy Advocacy Practice also support the other practice areas of the Deakin Law Clinic through the development and publication of community legal information in consultation with Clinical Solicitors. At the completion of the unit, students will gain specialised substantive knowledge concerning the policy problem and develop and hone a range of practical legal skills.
