Community Legal Educators Masterclass

Community Legal Centres Queensland invites community legal centre directors, lawyers, social workers, project managers, community legal education workers in the legal assistance and community sectors to come along to this stand out professional development opportunity.

At this masterclass you will learn how to:

  • share knowledge, skills and tools to strengthen your community legal education practice
  • enhance your ability to communicate key legal messages to your audience
  • build networks and partnerships with other people doing similar work.

If you can't make it along to the training but are keen to catch up with your colleagues who work in the communtiy legal educators space then join us for a drink at The Apo Bar, 690 Ann Street, Fortitude Valley.  We will be meeting there at 5.30pm on Tuesday 6 March, 2018.
