This thesis describes the options for setting up a Tasmanian Community Legal Centre.
One problem for a Tasmanian-based operation is that there is no definitive model that can be
followed. There are many community legal centres operating on the mainland but they are diverse
heterogeneous entities that differ markedly between states and often even within states. This thesis looks at
some of the problems inherent in defining what a Community Legal Centre (CLC) is, how it can relate both
philosophically and practically to its surrounding community, and how it sees it role, not only in terms of
delivery of legal services but also in terms of a philosophical commitment to changing the agenda for legal
service delivery, legal education and access to law.
