Webinars and events

Emergence: Our stories in the next decade is the theme for a series of events and collaborations in 2020 and 2021 culminating in the next National CLCs Conference planned for August 2022. Read more about our theme.

This year we continue to facilitate and co-design online opportunities for professional development, networking, up-skilling and strategic discussions. At the same time, we create a shared space for reflection and support so that we can process the experiences and lessons we are learning as a sector.  We are also planning to start integrating some small in-person events later this year, COVID-19 restrictions permitting.

We invite you to join our webinar series, co-created in collaboration with our colleagues and partners across the legal assistance sector as well as other allies. Click on the webinar titles to see details and register.
