Free on-the-go legal guidance for international students

Multilingual legal information will be available to international students across NSW through the new app ‘MyLegal Mate’, funded by the City of Sydney. 

MyLegal Mate will allow international students to access instant legal information in English and six different community languages. 

Lord Mayor Clover Moore said the City was proud to fund the app to support international students studying, living and working in Sydney. 

“Moving to a new city can be a bewildering experience, especially if there are language barriers and you do not know where to go for advice,” the Lord Mayor said. “This wonderful new app will put an invaluable legal resource in the pockets of international students and provide support as soon as they need it.”

“Being able to attract and nurture the best candidates from around the world is an investment in our city’s future. That’s why we’ve supported this innovative information resource, and look forward to it helping students from all backgrounds,” the Lord Mayor added. 

MyLegal Mate will inform students of their rights before they start their course, as well as information on employment, housing, disputes with education providers, and sexual assault. 

The information will be delivered through interactive videos in a face-to-face format, making it user-friendly and accessible. 

The app was created and developed by the Redfern Legal Centre, led by solicitor Sean Stimson, the head of Redfern Legal Services International Student Legal Service NSW.

“This is an innovative way for our service to ensure that international students can gain immediate access to tailored legal information and be empowered to take greater control when problems occur,” Mr Stimson said. 

The app will be freely available through the student’s educational providers.
