Legal Education Sessions

Legal Education Sessions for Aboriginal Community

The Tasmanian Legal Aid Commission will be coming along to facilitate a range of different community legal information sessions for our Elders/Aged Care Program.

We are opening these sessions up for the Aboriginal community to join the Elders/Aged Care program.

All sessions will be held:

  • Tuesdays
  • 11 am to 1 pm
  • piyura kitina / Risdon Cove (in the community room)

Each session has a specific topic, and these are listed below.

  • 30 August 2022 – Enduring guardianship and enduring powers of attorney
  • 27 September 2022 – Wills and estates and advance care directives
  • 25 October 2022 – Elder abuse and family violence
  • 29 November 2022 – Consumer rights (covers door-to-door sales, lay by, warrants, refund, consumer law, and scammers)
  • 23 December 2022 – Grandparents’ rights to access grandchildren

In order to keep our community and elders safe, bookings are essential for these workshops.
