Legal Aid News - February 2021

5 Feb 2021

The February 2021 issue of Legal Aid News is now available.

In this month’s edition, you’ll read about two recent celebrations at Legal Aid NSW. One of our senior civil lawyers, Sally Bryant, was awarded the Public Service Medal in January 2021, and we celebrated 25 years of an important scheme supporting children and young people at court in December 2020.

You’ll learn about our recent submission to a child protection inquiry and the publishing of a report written by our Refugee Service community engagement officer, Nohara Odicho, regarding the refugee experience in NSW. You’ll read that our panels are now open for applications from private lawyers wanting to do legal aid work and that our Child Support Service has found ongoing success with phone-based service delivery.

This edition also includes information about our programs and publications, along with useful resources and events for community workers, private practitioners, and the general public.
