Youth Law Australia is committed to helping young people under 25 and their supporters to find solutions to their legal problems. Youth Law Australia sincerely thanks its staff, board and volunteers for their expertise and tireless effort towards helping young people under 25.

Director and Board of Directors

Youth Law Australia is governed by a Board of Directors. Board members bring their expertise, vision and commitment to children’s rights to guide Youth Law Australia in achieving its vision of helping all young people under the age of 25 with a problem that would benefit from legal help to find the solution they need.

The Board meets during the year and is supported by its own Finance Committee which monitors Youth Law Australia’s financial situation on a more regular basis.
