Let’s talk

This education kit is provided by Legal Aid NSW, a legal organisation that helps people in NSW. It was published in October 2015

Let’s talk is a community legal education package about the Australian law and legal system. It can be delivered to people who have recently arrived in Australia in order to give them an overview of the Australian legal system.

The Let’s talk community legal education package aims to assist lawyers and other people who deliver training to recent arrivals on Australian law. The content has been developed for people who have lived in Australia for less than 5 years.

The materials are designed to be easily understood by people who are not familiar with the Australian legal system and who may have difficulty speaking and understanding English. The resources are designed for an audience with level 1 and pre-English literacy and numeracy.

The package has been designed for flexibility and can be tailored to meet the specific education requirements of a particular group. Mix and match the modules and the activities to fit in with the length of the session and the needs of participants.
