This is a webinar series run by the Centre for Innovative Justice for RMIT students.
The Neighbourhood Justice Centre (NJC) is Australia’s only community justice centre. Located in Collingwood, it services the City of Yarra and is committed to resolving disputes by addressing the underlying causes of harmful behaviour and tackling social disadvantage. The NJC has been effective in reducing crime, increasing community safety and creating savings by reducing the number of cases in the system. It has done this by bringing together multiple jurisdictions, and a wide array of support services and community initiatives.Join us on this online taster placement for RMIT students to understand how ‘place-based justice’ works and what ‘one-stop-justice’ means. Hear from Fitzroy Legal Service and Victoria Legal Aid community lawyers who will offer you an insight into their role and work at the NJC.
