EDO NSW (Environmental Defenders Office NSW) is a community legal centre specialising in public interest environmental law. We help people who want to protect the environment through law.
Our work relies greatly on the commitment of students and professionals who volunteer their time and skills to help protect the environment. EDO NSW runs a volunteer program at our Sydney office and at our Northern Rivers branch office in Lismore.
Lawyers and law students who have studied environmental law are encouraged to join our volunteer program, either by volunteering at EDO NSW in Sydney or Lismore, or by providing pro bono services.
We ask our volunteers to make a commitment to work at least one day per week for at least 3 months.
EDO NSW is able to supervise practical legal training (PLT) students. Priority is given to those who have previously volunteered with us.
