Law for Community Workers Webinar - 'Law Check-up'

This course has no current classes. Please the waiting list.

This webinar will provide an introduction to Law Check-Up – a tool for community and health workers to identify if your client has a legal problem, and where to refer them for help. It will help you to understand the types of issues that are legal problems and how to use the Law Check-Up tool to identify legal problems with your clients.

In this webinar Legal Aid NSW lawyers will explain:

  • Why checking your client’s legal health is important
  • Why Legal Aid need your help to get clients to services that can help with their legal issues
  • How you can work with Legal Aid by using the Law Check-Up tool to identify legal problems and then referring your clients for free legal and other support services in your local community.

What is the Law Check-Up tool?
The Law Check-Up tool is a form that helps you and your client identify if they have legal problems. It has a referral section on it, so after you complete all the details on the form you can scan and email it through to the service that can help your client with their legal problems. The client can take the original copy to the appointment. You are able to attend the appointment with your client and, if required, you can also ask that an interpreter be organised to help your client during the appointment.
