Meet the Legal Counsel behind the Disability Royal Commission – 5 December
People with disability, their families or anyone with an interest in the Disability Royal Commission are invited to attend a presentation by the Counsel Assisting the Royal Commission, Ms Kate Eastman SC.
The free event will be held at the Baulkham Hills Community Centre on Saturday 5 December at 2pm.
The seminar will cover key aspects of the Royal Commission into Violence, Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation of People with Disability. It will focus on the Royal Commission’s terms of reference, an update of the work done so far, the role of lawyers, and how people can become involved with the Royal Commission’s work.
Ms Olivia Dinkha, Barrister at Edmund Barton Chambers will chair the event.
What to do if you’re arrested – 12 December
What happens when you get arrested? What do you need to know when you are dealing with the police, the Local Court and District Court?
These questions and more will be answered in the final free legal seminar being held by the Toongabbie Legal Centre on 12 December 2pm, at the Castle Hill Cultural Centre.
District Court Judge His Honour Judge Norma Delaney, Local Court Magistrate, His Honour Magistrate Theo Tsavdaridis and Defence Barrister Ms Razia Shafiq, will talk about what part they play when people are involved with the criminal law.
