Masterclass 3: The Story of Justice: getting your point across through methods old and new
In a crowded funding and media environment, it’s more important than ever for the community law sector to be telling our stories, about our organisations and the important work we do, about the world we’re trying to create, and, when appropriate, about the people we help daily. Join a group of experts for a hands-on and interactive masterclass exploring the latest ideas and trends in communications, including valuable time to workshop ideas that will benefit you, your organisation and the people you work with.

Masterclass 4: Immigration law training
Changes to the Migration Act mean that, from November, lawyers will be able to provide migration advice (without being registered migration agents). This means that generalist CLC lawyers will be able to provide migration advice, which is great for access to justice especially in regional areas.
This interactive training, delivered by specialist practitioners, will cover migration law and practical tips for people new to this area. Participants will have the chance to take part in role play and exercises.
A full day of training will cover:
- Introduction to migration law
- Family violence provisions under the migration regulations
- Family reunions
- Character provisions
- Migration law for workers and students
- Review of migration decisions and time limits
- Assisting refugees and people seeking asylum - including working with the client group, trauma informed practice and working with interpreters
- Interviewing clients for migration law appointments
