Community Legal Education Program

Our Community Legal Education (CLE) program educates Queenslanders about their legal rights and responsibilities, and where to get help. Our program focuses on common legal issues for clients such as:

  • money and debt
  • relationships and separation
  • domestic and family violence
  • criminal charges and going to court.

Legal information and resources

We produce free publications and resources on common legal issues.

You can also view our video resources on our YouTube channel.

The Queensland Legal Assistance Forum (QLAF) website also has a range of legal information resources.

There are also a number of CLE resources available to community workers and carers which have been produced as part of the Community Legal Education Collaboration Fund.

Email the Community Legal Education team for more information.

Previous editions of Head Note

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Recently most of this work has been published through our social media channels and we believe these have superseded our newsletter, providing our news updates in a more timely manner and more effectively.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. 

Contact the Community Legal Education team for more information.
