COMMUNITY LEGAL EDUCATION

Our centre provides free legal community education through seminars, talks, stalls, articles and workshops.

Community legal education can serve a number of purposes including:

  • Informing you about your legal rights and responsibilities; 

  • Educating communities about the introduction and impact of new laws; 

  • Advising people about their options in specific circumstances e.g., if you are dismissed at work or refused a refund; and

  • Ensuring people know what we do and how we can help.

 

Who benefits from community legal education?

Some examples are listed below:

  • Not-for-profit community organisations;

  • People with disabilities;

  • Seniors and seniors groups;

  • Indigenous people;

  • Young people;

  • People accessing the family law system; and
