Legal advice as a human right: Can early access to legal assistance make a difference to safety in Family Violence Intervention Order matters?
Drawing on the CIJ’s research to support implementation of Recommendation 77 of the Royal Commission into Family Violence, this webinar explored the benefits of early legal advice and assistance from different perspectives.
The panel discussion featured findings from ARC Justice’s research into the needs of Affected Family Members in regional Victoria; reflections on the benefits of providing pre-court support to young people by Youthlaw; and reflections on the emerging benefits of pre-court support from Victoria Legal Aid.
