Networks & Working Groups

 

Community legal centre networks meet at each Quarterly event to coordinate advocacy, share tips and experiences, provide peer support in complex areas, hear from guest presenters on relevant issues, and develop joint strategies for improving clients' experiences of the justice system.

Network meetings are scheduled at each Quarterly event in February, May, September and November. Details about each event and how to register are available on our Quarterly web page prior to each event.
