International Students Work Rights Legal Service
We are a free, confidential and independent legal service for international students. Our lawyers can help international students with work-related legal problems, (excluding migration).
We also offer free talks and workshops for international students about common legal problems and how to avoid them. Please see the [News and Events section/sidebar] for more details.
Our lawyers are available every Thursday at the Study Melbourne Student Centre at 599 Little Bourke St, Melbourne (close to Southern Cross station).
