What's the law?
|Subtitle||Australian law for new arrivals|
What's the law? has been developed by legal aid commissions for use in the Adult Migrant English Program (AMEP). AMEP provide 510 hours of free English language classes to newly arrived migrants and refugees.
The kit can also be used in other classroom and community settings.
The kit features a DVD that is based on the concept in Getting to know the law in my new country, created by Footscray CLC in 2009-10 for AMEP classes in Victoria.
The kit features a series of 10 audio visual stories and activities that reflect legal issues commonly experienced by new arrivals. The stories are drawn from real case studies. The kit also includes activity sheets for students and answer sheets for educators, as well as tips on how to deal with legal questions that students might have.
It will help new arrivals to recognise a legal issue and to know that they can get free legal help and where to get it.
