Know your Rights and other talks

Community Law & Mediation delivers free information and Know Your Rights talks in the community.

What know your rights talks do we provide?

We provide online and in person know your rights talks covering legal issues affecting communities. This includes areas such as employment, family and children’s law, debt, social welfare, housing, environmental justice, and mediation.

At Community Law & Mediation, our experienced qualified solicitors deliver legal talks at schools, universities, workplaces, and community centers. Visit our Meet the Team page to learn more about our team.

Why are know your rights talks important?

We often encounter a lack of awareness of how the law can assist in situations of homelessness or refusal of social welfare, issues that are critical to social inclusion as they most affect a person’s ability to participate fully in society.

So, for that reason, access to justice begins long before anyone steps inside a courtroom, it begins with creating an awareness of rights and the law so that the community are empowered to use the law to enforce those rights.

If you have a group who you would like us to give a talk to on any of the above areas of law, please email
