Caxton Legal Centre Inc. was established in 1976 and is Queensland's oldest community legal centre. We are a non-profit community organisation providing free legal advice to people on low income or who face other disadvantage.

We recognise that there are many barriers to accessing justice, however, we do encourage higher income earners to consult private lawyers to ensure our services are reaching our most disadvantaged clients.

The Seniors Legal and Support Service, and the Park and Village Information Link are part of Caxton Legal Centre. Social work assistance is also available to clients receiving help from the centre.

Client Service

Caxton's services are in high demand with well over 4000 clients receiving legal advice every year. To satisfy this high level of need, the centre relies heavily on our many generous volunteer lawyers and law students for their time and expertise.

Community Legal Education

Caxton staff regularly speak to community groups and associations on particular areas of law and about our services.

Law Reform

Caxton Legal Centre continuously contributes to law reform activities, stakeholer consultations and reviews. This engagement enables Caxton to advocate for the interests of those who are marginalised by laws and the legal system.

Funding

The centre receives funding from various federal and state government departments. Additional funding is raised through donations, membership fees and other fundraising activities.

Caxton Legal Centre's vision is to:

  • build a just and inclusive society that values difference and diversity 
  • influence the development of law to recognise the needs of people who are socially or economically disadvantaged
  • assist people to excercise their rights who would otherwise be denied access to justice due to social or economic disadvantage.

Our Goals are to:

  • promote access to justice
  • provide free legal advice and information
  • empower people to address their legal problems
  • increase community awareness of the law
  • produce plain-English publications
  • work to change unfair laws.


A management committee oversees the general direction of the centre, while day-to-day operations are managed by the centre's paid staff.
