Better information

Victoria Law Foundation wants legal information to be easy to find, understand and use.

We use the principles of plain language to ensure the language, structure, design and delivery of the legal information we produce meets the needs of our audiences. And we can help your organisation do the same. To this end we have developed this 'Better information' section of our website.

We can help you find great plain language resources for your client and training to help you to understand the key principles of plain language and workshops on the benefits of producing legal information that can be understood the first time, every time. Please note: Due to the popularity of these workshops priority will be given to people involved in the production of community legal information and foundation grant recipients.

This workshop will help you develop basic audio recording skills, avoid some common pitfalls and offer some tips on how to share your audio creation with the world.
Throughout the year Victoria Law Foundation runs a series of workshops for lawyers, legal professionals, community workers and tertiary law school students who want to improve their communication skills.
