Working effectively with respondents is a key part of keeping aggrieved parties safe in DV (domestic violence) matters, ensuring the smooth operation of DV courts, and helping to effect change in this area. Many Community Legal Centre staff are working as DV duty lawyers; other CLC staff and volunteers are advising clients about DV matters and may need to develop these skills quickly. Our presenters Rikki-Jane Buckland and Amelda Schrenk are solicitors at the Gold Coast Community Legal Service and work as DV duty lawyers in the Southport Magistrates Court.
