Who are we?

The Parramatta Community Justice Clinic (PCJC) is a legal education program of Western Sydney University in partnership with Western Sydney Community Legal Centre. Western Sydney University law students work side-by-side with practicing solicitors who give legal advice to Western Sydney residents who cannot afford a solicitor. Our students gain valuable experience helping vulnerable people while fulfilling the University's mission for social justice and equality.
