GCLS provides legal education throughout Gippsland
GCLS offers free Community Legal Education (CLE) sessions and workshops to community members and professionals. CLE usually involves our lawyers talking to community members or professionals about common legal issues to help them limit the risk and likelihood of those issues occurring. Our sessions and workshops are designed to be non-judgemental and engaging.
Legal topics for presentations and workshops
GCLS aims to be responsive to community need and may be able to tailor a session to your needs, even if that topic isn’t in our existing portfolio.
GCLS has existing resources for many legal topics, including:
- Family violence
- Family law
- The intersections of family violence, family law and child protection
- The Mental Health
- The legal system and legal rights
- Neighbourhood disputes
- Planning law
- The Victims’ Charter
- Wills and power of attorneys
Legal Aid: Sex, Young People, and the Law
GCLS also offers CLE sessions and workshops based on Victoria Legal Aid’s CLE resources.
Sessions available in the Victoria Legal Aid Sex, Young People, and the Law resource, intended for delivery to secondary school students, include:
- Age of consent
GCLS works closely with Gippsland Legal Assistance Forum (GLAF) to deliver CLE throughout Gippsland
GCLS works closely with our partner organisations to ensure that the CLE sessions and workshops we provide are available throughout Gippsland to the people who need them most. This includes working with our partners at the Gippsland Legal Assistance Forum, Djirrra, the Victorian Aboriginal Legal Service and Victoria Legal Aid. This often means that we can co-deliver CLE sessions or workshops with those partners to provide a more holistic overview of the topic.
