About HALC

About HALC

The HIV AIDS Legal Centre (HALC) is a not-for-profit, specialist community legal centre, and the only one of its kind in Australia. As lawyers we tackle the severe stigma and discrimination that remains associated with HIV, and provide specialist support to deal with the particular issues that HIV and the law create.

Last year our hard-working, committed solicitors and an amazing team of volunteers delivered around 17,000 hours of legal support helping over 1,000 clients, and provided specialist legal support to a sister agency in Papua New Guinea

We provide volunteering opportunities for law students and graduates completing their legal training. For more information about volunteering at HALC, please go to our Volunteering page.
