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


Our training is evidence-informed and draws on best practice, as well as our practical on the ground experience working with women.


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



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



We can tailor courses to suit the needs of professionals and organisations across the not-for profit and community sector, as well as private business, government, and other organisations. Get in touch
