Title

Legal Health Check POP UP shops!

Subtitle Law Week 2016
Abstract

To celebrate Law Week this year we were out in our community offering free legal health checks and a shot in our blizzard machine to win instant prizes. A legal health check is a conversation starter to help people identify their legal problems and get help. There was an opportunity for community members to have a one–on–one chat with a legal professional and also take away resources to read at home. We ran six successful days of events in three locations, spending time at Bellarine Village in Newcomb, Colac Woolworths and Market Square in Geelong and spoke to over 1200 people.
