Community Legal Education for Community Workers

Once a month, Kingsford legal Centre conducts legal information workshops for community workers. Topics cover a wide range of legal issues such as family law, social security, tenancy, credit and debt, powers of attorney and the Australian legal system. The workshops are limited to organisations and community services which provide a service in the Botany Bay and/or Randwick Local Government areas. If you would like to be included on the email list for the CLE Community Workers CLE please send your details by email to legal@unsw.edu.au and include your name, contact details and the details of the organisation you are from.

One-off Community Legal Education workshops can also be requested by any organisation or group located within the Botany and Randwick Local Government areas. Please send an email to legal@unsw.edu.au specifying the area of law you would like covered in the CLE and contact details.  A staff member will then contact you direct to discuss your needs.
