Consumer Law Centre ACT

About the CLC

The CLC is a non-profit community legal centre that provides free legal advice and assistance to low and moderate income consumers. We specialise in the areas of consumer credit (mortgages, credit cards and personal loans), debt recovery, banking, simple contracts, general fair trading and consumer protection.

In addition to direct client work, the CLC works towards improving legal protection for consumers, and raising awareness and understanding of consumer’s rights in the ACT through community education and outreach. The CLC also makes regular submissions to government with the aim of improving access to justice for our community’s vulnerable and disadvantaged.

The Consumer Law Centre operates a telephone advice line Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday from 2.00 pm — 4.00 pm.
