Adelaide Legal Outreach Service

The Adelaide Legal Outreach Service (ALOS) is a FREE legal advice service run by the University of Adelaide Law School.

The service is operated by final year law students under the supervision of fully qualified legal practitioners.

ALOS is a confidential service that is open to anyone in need of legal support. Our purpose is to serve the needs of the disadvantaged and anyone who "falls through the gaps".

Our main role is to provide preliminary advice and legal support.

But we also assist clients with managing their own cases, or we can refer them to other agencies who have the capacity to handle more complex matters. Such agencies include the Legal Services Commission or Justicenet SA.

Adelaide Legal Outreach Service Guide

MCLAS students have prepared a mini-series providing you with a step-by-step guide on how to serve documents upon another party according to the law.

ALOS students have prepared a questionnaire to assist community workers with the tools to correctly identify the legal needs or disadvantaged clients. This Legal Health Check is designed to equip smaller legal services with the tool to diagnose complex issues and provide a referral service for clients.

MCLAS students have prepared an easy to use referral guide designed to assists members of the community with the access to justice they need. They have compiled a guide that focusses on all areas of law and provided services that offer free legal assistance for those areas of concern. This referral guide is useful for both members of the public and community services
