We provide legal education to help build knowledge in the community about legal rights and responsibilities. We also produce information to help people once they are in the legal system, and maintain a range of legal tools that can be used by teachers and other workers. Our focus is on early intervention to prevent legal problems from arising or escalating.
We often collaborate with other organisations across Victoria and nationally on legal education projects to benefit particular groups or to address specific legal issues. For more information, please .
