This course, aimed at community workers or staff in agencies involved in direct client contact has a practical focus, developing skills in giving legal information and assisting people to understand legal procedures.
Students must be able to understand or learn legal terminology, be interested in legal issues and social justice, have good IT skills, and regular access to the internet and email. People working in Aboriginal services, with new migrants, with people with disability, with young people or with any disadvantaged groups are particularly encouraged to apply.
The course consists of two modules, which are a pathway to a Certificate IV in Legal Services. Students need to attend one morning a week over two 21-week semesters, and complete homework each week as well as assessments.
The text book is The Law Handbook, available free online.
