Expresso Legal is an initiative of the not-for-profit Whittlesea Community Connections and funded by the Victoria Law Foundation. It is a coffee van with a twist.

The van’s coffee-makers are actually community lawyers, with some barista training. They visit new developments and isolated communities on the fringes of the City of Whittlesea where there are few free community services.
This discussion is set to be extendable. After it expires, the content will remain, but all guests will be removed. After that if any guests decide to join it, more days will be added to the discussion

It really doesn't help them much unless these lawyers help make the case too right? So what if they give legal advice? Most can't afford a lawyer to do anything about it.

I think it would be better if they used the money for coffee to just establish a free clinic. That would help people more than just legal advise.
