ALS staff deliver Community Legal Education (CLE) in a culturally appropriate way to children, young people, adults, workers and members of the Aboriginal community.

We deliver CLE at meetings and forums, annual festivals, events and campaigns, to large and small groups, and via invitation.

We produce information sheets, brochures and short films on legal and other issues affecting people in NSW and ACT.

We also assist young people to make short films on legal issues that affect them through the Talking FactSheet Project.
