Anika is a free online legal service that helps Victorian renters take control of their living situation. Get reliable legal assistance and advice that’s specific to your circumstances.
Anika began as six friends who entered the Melbourne Global Legal Hackathon 2018. What started as a weekend to hang out and solve some legal problems culminated in the winning idea for Anika, a whirlwind two months of building on the initial idea, and progressing to the Global Legal Hackathon final at a gala in New York City. After placing runners-up at the global final, the six friends, united by a passion for access to justice and the idea, decided to turn the idea into a reality and became co-founders of Anika Legal.
Now, these six friends are part of the collective that is Anika, a registered charity and social enterprise which provides free legal assistance to people who can’t access it, as well as practical legal education to law students. The team of six co-founders has blossomed to a team of 70 passionate people (and growing!), united by our vision of a world where everyone has access to justice.
