Legal education for the community

Becoming legally literate: Building your legal capability
Ensuring good “legal health” is one of our clinic’s goals. We want to help you understand the laws that affect you and how to cope with common problems.
Understanding how laws impact on you and protect your rights can help you to become more legally empowered.
Always make sure the information you are relying on is still accurate. Laws do sometimes change, or a judge’s decision in a case might change how the law applies to you. Through this website and our partnership with Steps to Justice, we are trying to keep you linked to up-to-date legal information.
