Young Workers Legal Service

Volunteer Testimonials - Russell

"Nowhere else have I been able to have the experiences that I have had with the YWLS. To be given the trust to actually interview people, have input into the advice and then advise them, is something very few people of my experience can say they have done (and most of them are at the YWLS). At a time when the legal jobs market is nearly non-existent, the experience I gained gave me a valuable edge in the job market, and probably lead directly to my current job.

The YWLS gave me exposure to an area in which I only had academic experience. Now my knowledge, in practice and theory, has been extended beyond the textbooks, beyond the coverage of academia. Because we represent people who traditionally would not use the legal system we have discovered issues which may not have been addressed or discovered before."
