Your Family & the Law

Your Family & the Law flyerYour Family & the Law is a program of free community legal education sessions, presented by a lawyer from Legal Aid WA. It has been developed by Legal Aid WA as a program that delivers a common-sense approach to explaining the law in the areas of family violence, family law and child protection.
