Fitzroy Legal Service is pleased to announce a new community sector workers manual to the legal system is now available to download for free.
This comprehensive guide takes a welfare perspective of the law and is an excellent starting point for workers in disability, youth, drug & alcohol and other community/welfare sectors who need to understand the legal system but do not want to be bogged down by the law. It is also being used as a text by a number of courses in this area.
Between a Rock and a Hard Place is housed on the Fitzroy Legal Service's new site Law4community.
Law4community features a comprehensive legal services directory and legal checklists that help identify related legal issues and services. Law4community also includes information on alternative dispute resolution, mediation, and how to access ombudsmen. It is a great resource for Community services and welfare students and teachers.
