Community Worker Forums

Subtitle Legal training for community workers across Victoria

Fitzroy Legal Service, in collaboration with a number of community legal centres, hosted 9 training forums across metropolitan and regional Victoria in 2015.

The forums provided frontline community workers with practical legal tips and insights into areas of the law that are most likely to impact their clients, including:

  • Introduction to the Criminal Justice System
  • Sentencing and Therapeutic Jurisprudence
  • Civil Law for Community Workers (Fines and Infringements, Intervention Orders, and Victims of Crime Tribunal)
  • Confidentiality and Duty of Care

The reading guide for the sessions can be downloaded from this page, and copies of the presentations can be obtained via the contact details below.
