The Children’s Legal Service (CLS) is a specialist unit of the Legal Aid NSW. Our solicitors advise and represent children and young people under 18 involved in criminal cases in the Children’s Courts. Our aim is to ensure that children and young people have access to professional, face-to-face or telephone­ based legal advice at any stage of their legal proceedings. We also have specialist solicitors who deliver free workshops on criminal law and crime prevention.
