Over many years Legal Aid Queensland’s newsletter Head Note has provided updates to the CLE sector about the work we’ve been doing.
Recently most of this work has been published through our social media channels and we believe these have superseded our newsletter, providing our news updates in a more timely manner and more effectively.
You can still read past editions of Head Note to learn about our community legal education projects, webinars, events, publications, resources and initiatives. You can also view previous CLE bulletins. Please note in January 2017, the CLE bulletin merged with Head Note.
