Health Advocacy Legal Clinic at Mater

Often complex legal and social issues can form part of the environmental causes of ill-health in patients. The Mater clinic uses a combination of medical, social work and legal skills to address the issues confronting patients.

Patients are referred by hospital social workers, nurses and clinicians to the clinic. A team comprising of law students, social work students, medical students and a supervising lawyer assist in addressing the legal and social challenges facing the client.

What the clinic can assist with

The clinic can help clients with civil law matters, including:

  • advanced care plans;
  • guardianship and administration;
  • mental health law;
  • discrimination; and
  • other civil law issues.

The Health Advocacy Legal Clinic operates during university semesters on a Monday and Thursday.
