Justices of the Peace League

The pen is mightier than the sword

Our JP services are currently suspended due to COVID-19.

The Justices of the Peace League are a team of dedicated volunteers who receive official accreditation by the Attorney General's office to be Justices of the Peace (JP's) and help the local community by witnessing, checking and certifying your documents.


JP's operate from the Clubs Space, located in Basser College next to the (oh-so-long) Basser Steps, or take the lift to Level 2.


To keep you, our volunteers, and our staff safe, we're taking our own advice and practicing some social distancing right now. This means our JP service will not be operational for the time being.

What should I bring?

When visiting our JP service, please remember to bring your own documents to be certified, as we are not able to provide print or photocopy services. When certifying copies of documents, the JP needs to see the original physical documents (unless it is a printout of an online document), so make sure to bring those along too!


Volunteer to join the League for an official accreditation as a Justice of the Peace and provide a service to UNSW students.

In this position you can develop your interpersonal and communication skills, along with the prestige of working under the appointment of the Attorney General's office. 

You will also be recognised by the State as a Justice of the Peace for five years.

Volunteering with the Justices of Peace League is also recognised on your Australian Higher Education Graduation Statement (AHEGS).
