We train frontline professionals so women in crisis can get the legal and social supports they need to recover.  


Our courses are practical and accessible and give participants the skills, tools, knowledge, and confidence to assist their clients by identifying and responding to family violence, identifying legal needs, and helping them access appropriate legal information and assistance.  

Our trainers draw on Women’s Legal Service Victoria more than 40 years of working with women with legal issues arising from family violence and relationship breakdown. 

Some of the organisations that we’ve partnered with include Relationships Australia, the Law Institute of Victoria, the Orange Door, Court Services Network, Victoria Police, Financial Counsellors Australia, Department of Justice and Community Services, and Victoria Legal Aid.


We share invaluable knowledge of the law, government policies, evidence-based research, as well as our practical on the ground experience working with women. 


Delivered online or in-person, our training builds the capacity of legal practitioners, family violence practitioners and other professionals to better support family violence victim-survivors to get the legal and social support they need.
