Plenty of opportunity for learning and development whilst being supported by your managers and colleagues. I would recommend VLA to prospective employees as I enjoy working here.

finance area stifles people with rigid controls

worked in finance area as a contractor and you have to work like a mule the moment you have a toilet break someone calls you after seeing the notification come up in their screen that you have been out of your screen more than 5 minutes. Good place to work if you like to work like a mule. When I was sick for two days they cancelled my contract. They use carrot and stick method to treat staff in finance. Very high labour turnover.


unprofessional staff in finance

A good place for a Law student to intern and network with past and present law faculty alumni.

I worked there as an unpaid intern (volunteer), with the parenting disputes team. I came into work every moring around 8AM-9AM and prepared case briefs for the staff working on their individual cases.

Productive, serious but relaxed workplace

Marvellous supportive team, Manager who is trusting of employees to use initiative to do work allocated. Always asking for improvements to work. Relaxed atmosphere. NFP. Assisting people in family law area an often stressful area with a high workload. A joy to work with such a great team of people. No question was too stupid to ask. Praise and support where needed. Regular social activities, lunch, meetings. Small team but productive in output. Did not want to leave. I learnt the difference between being micromanaged as a former employee and being accepted, trusted to do my work and use sound judgement. Learnt new programs. I related to my co-workers. The hardest part of the job was learning the process. Once learnt attention to detail was vital. Neatness, multi tasking files not rushing. Enjoyable part of the job the people. The freedom to take lunch when wanted to between 12-2 and be trusted.


Relaxed dress code and to be able be yourself and contribute


High workload but managable.
