Upcoming events

Management Committee Governance Training

Caxton Legal Centre is offering free training mainly targeted at management committee members of poorly funded or unfunded incorporated associations that provide community support services. We will be discussing the relevant provisions of Queensland's Associations Incorporation Act 1981 (Qld) and Regulations, governance principles and risk management.

Please contact the Centre for more information.

The centre also has opportunities for University of Queensland law students to be involved in community legal education work through participation in the Manning Street Project. Enquiries should be directed to the UQ Pro Bono Centre.

For community legal education needs outside of these areas please communicate with staff. To arrange a presentation please contact the centre.
