About Us

Our Vision

Kingsford Legal Centre works for a fair, just and equal legal system and society. A system where lawyers are educated to be ethical and have an understanding of the needs and impact of the law on our community members who experience inequity and injustice.

Community Legal Centre

Kingsford Legal Centre has been providing quality legal services to south-eastern Sydney community members since July 1981. As an accredited legal centre with the Community Legal Centres Australia and a member of Community Legal Centres NSW, KLC is one of over 40 community legal centres committed to providing equitable and accessible legal services within New South Wales.

Kingsford Legal Centre is part of the UNSW Sydney Faculty of Law & Justice and provides a number of clinical legal education programs to its students. KLC's lawyers, volunteers and students help over 1,500 local community members each year with problems such as domestic violence, discrimination, housing, employment, criminal law, credit and debt, fines and victim’s compensation.

Kingsford Legal Centre receives funding from the UNSW Sydney Faculty of Law & Justice and the Community Legal Centres Program administered by Legal Aid NSW. Income is also received as one-off grants from other funding bodies and generous donations from a range of individuals and organisations. Please see the latest Annual Report for further details.

Additionally, Herbert Smith Freehills has provided six-month secondee solicitors to Kingsford Legal Centre for over thirty years. This generous support enables Kingsford Legal Centre to provide legal advice, casework and community legal education to hundreds of clients each year who would otherwise miss out.

Kingsford Legal Centre acknowledges the Gadigal and Bidjigal Clans, who traditionally occupied the Sydney Coast.
We respect those Elders, past and present, and thank them for allowing us to work and study on their lands
