Training and Quarterlies


CLCNSW Quarterlies

CLCNSW organises four network and professional development events for community legal centres through the year. Each day of the Quarterly has a program of concurrent network meetings and professional development sessions covering a range of legal, legal related and organisation management issues. Sessions are designed for community legal centre staff and volunteers from across NSW to share experiences, gain updates and new knowledge from peers and external experts about law and policy changes and learn about innovative practice. The event is free to CLCNSW member organisations.

For further information about Quarterly program content contact Laurel Draffen, CLCNSW Capacity Building Coordinator

For event logistics enquiries including registration, venue information and presenter equipment please contact Vijhai Utheyan, CLCNSW Office Manager,

Yarn Up

Yarn Up, a forum specifically for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander workers in community legal centres is held on the Monday of the Quarterly event. For further information about Yarn Up contact Zachary Armytage, Aboriginal Legal Access Program Coordinator
