IMCL launches fortnightly employment law clinic

IMCL has partnered with top-tier law firm Clayton Utz to launch a fortnightly employment law clinic.

Employment law cases have surfaced as a rising issue in our community, and by adding this area of law to our suite of services through this pro bono partnership, IMCL is delivering a one-stop shop for people experiencing legal problems.

The collaborative working partnership between IMCL and Clayton Utz aims to build IMCL’s internal capacity by benefitting from the law firm’s mentorship in this specific area of law.

Clayton Utz Senior Associate Ruth Thevathasan worked with IMCL graduate lawyer Hannah Fessah on a recent case.

“Working with Hannah and the IMCL team has been a delight,” she said.

“Hannah has actively engaged with the guidance and support provided by Clayton Utz to become an effective advocate for the workplace rights of IMCL clients, particularly in Fair Work Commission proceedings.”

The employment law clinic runs fortnightly on Fridays between 9–11 (by appointment).
