Workshops online

Online training presented by Justice Connect

These online workshops are interactive, plain English legal training delivered by lawyers from Justice Connect who have expertise in charity and not-for-profit law and experience in providing training to not-for-profit organisations. Justice Connect is also a charity and not-for-profit organisation and 100% of their profits go back into Not-for-profit Law’s services. There are lots of great resources on their website.

Like our face-to-face workshops these online workshops are designed to bring people from different corporations together to maximise information sharing, networking opportunities, problem solving practice and the generation of ideas affecting Indigenous corporations and communities in a region.
