Legal Needs Project
In October 2009, CLCNSW completed Phase 1 of the Legal Needs research and planning project. This Phase developed and trialled a model of evidence-based legal needs research and strategic planning for community legal centres. The outcomes of the project were the development of the Legal Needs Assessment Framework (LNAF), comprehensive reports (with mappings) and a data analysis and strategic planning toolkit.

In June 2010, CLCNSW completed Phase 2 of the Legal Needs research and planning project. The aim of this Phase was to undertake a supported roll out of the Legal Needs Strategic Planning Toolkit with four NSW CLCs. It was an oppurtunity to trial the Toolkit developed in Phase 1 with the four CLCs, whilst also providing support and assistance to those CLC's throughout the process.Click to download (306kb)
