Regional Outreach Clinic Program

The Regional Outreach Clinic Program (ROCP) supports free legal advice services for people experiencing social and economic disadvantage in regional, rural and remote areas of NSW where there is limited or no other access to free face to face legal assistance.

Services at ROCP clinics are provided by lawyers from the private sector and community legal centres who are on a Legal Aid NSW panel.  The clinics are held in partnership with host organisations that include local courts, neighbourhood centres and community services.  In some areas the ROCP clinic complements and expands on other services provided by Legal Aid NSW or other legal assistance services.

The ROCP is designed to be flexible.  Clinic locations may change in response to changes in other legal assistance services, and the needs of our clients.

The ROCP Guidelines provide more detail about the program. ROCP clinics are covered by the Legal Aid NSW complaints policy and complaints or other feedback regarding services provided at ROCP clinics can be initially directed to the Manager of the ROCP.
