Clinical Achievements of SCALES

Over the years our clinic has received many awards and accolades, including:

  • A National Human Rights Award (Law Category) awarded by the Australian Human Rights Commission
  • A High Commendation in the Premier’s Awards for Excellence
  • A Vice Chancellors Award for Excellence in
  • Enhanced Learning
  • A citation for Outstanding Contribution to Student Learning from the Australian Learning and Teaching Council
  • A Western Australian Consumer Protection Award for Organisational Achievement

More importantly it assists over 800 people each year, providing legal advice and representation which they would otherwise not be able to access. It has stopped families being evicted from their homes, people being deported to danger and protected women and children from family violence. The work the students do through the clinic is real legal work; it can and does change lives and not just our clients’ and students’ too.
