Connect & Learn: Working in the Criminal Justice System in collaboration with the AOD sector, presented by Tristan Brumby-Rendall, Drug Outreach Lawyer, Fitzroy Legal Service on 27 November 2023

7 Dec 2023

Our presentation will provide practitioners with an overview of the Drug outreach program provided by Fitzroy Legal Service exploring how it has built a success from a collaboration with the AOD sector.


We will also provide some of our observations which can ultimately lead to improving the life of the person beyond the legal matter. Through an exploration of the work that we do, the webinar will provide participants with the opportunity to:

  • Understand how to assist a person who uses drugs to obtain a better legal outcome, or at least avoid a worse one
  • Provide practical tips for working with people in the criminal justice system
  • Understand hidden aspects of the law that may affect people who use drugs
