Community Engagement

DCLS is committed to making the legal system more accessible to all members of our community. Community Legal Education (CLE) plays a major part in demystifying the law, and provides an opportunity to talk to the broader community about the rights of disadvantaged people. DCLS provides CLE to groups that want to know more about legal rights and responsibilities.

Topics include:

  • Human rights
  • Disability discrimination and rights
  • Social security (Centrelink) Debts, income management and appeals
  • Aged care rights
  • Tenancy – your rights and responsibilities under the Residential Tenancies Act
  • Adult guardianship
  • Advocacy
  • Duty of care and negligence
  • Employment law
  • Credit and debt
  • LGBTIQ+ rights
  • General legal issues

DCLS can provide CLE sessions for community groups, schools, clubs etc. Please fill out the below form if you would like DCLS to provide a CLE session, or contact the DCLS Community Engagement Officer on 08 8982 1111 to discuss your requirements. DCLS usually provides CLE free of charge. DCLS also produces a range of legal resources on rights and responsibilities for people who want to know the law in the Northern Territory. We also participate in production of the NT Law Handbook.
