Australian family law allows married or defacto couples to make legally binding (enforceable) financial agreements about their property. These agreements can be made before, during or at the end of a relationship. In this webinar, barrister Philip Sorensen will discuss drafting financial agreements and ensuring enforceability, changing and challenging agreements, enforcing parties’ rights, and managing risks in our legal practices.

Working with media
Community legal centres and their clients have important stories to share with policy makers, service providers, and the general public. One way that we can share these stories is through mainstream media, and many community legal centres use these media channels to argue for increased funding, advocate for better laws/policies, and celebrate successful cases and outcomes. In this Q&A panel, Cathy Baker (Community Legal Centres Queensland) asks a group of experienced journalists how CLCs’ media work can be more effective, and tips and tricks for your media work.

Governance and community legal centres
The time, enthusiasm and expertise that Management Committee members contribute to community legal centres and communities is a great asset to the sector. Management Committees operate as a leadership team, setting the strategic vision, direction and goals for the centre’s operation, and as a governance body and employer, working cooperatively with staff and volunteers. In this webinar, Penny Sullivan (Community Legal Centres Queensland) will reinforce principles and processes that support sound governance, accountability and ethical conduct.
