MyLegal Mate was the first mobile service of its kind in Australia. Developed with grant funding from the City of Sydney, the app will provide free legal guidance tailored for international students across NSW.
“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,” said Lord Mayor Clover Moore “It will help ensure they’re given every opportunity to have a safe, enjoyable and rewarding time, living and studying in Sydney and across NSW. International students enhance our city by contributing to Sydney’s diversity and strengthening our global connections. 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.”
