First Interview Scheme
The Society coordinates a scheme that enables a member of the public to have an initial 30-minute consultation with a solicitor for $99.00 (including GST). The scheme introduces clients to the firm and provides the client with an opportunity to obtain initial advice on their situation. Firms should run their usual conflict checks before accepting an appointment under the First Interview Scheme.
Conditions of the scheme are:
- Consultations are strictly limited to 30 minutes.
- The client must make an appointment with the firm under the First Interview Scheme.
- The client must pay the $99.00 fee at the conclusion of the consultation.
Firms can participate in the service by completing the First Interview Scheme Application form.
