Domestic Violence in the Age of COVID-19

There is growing concern that family violence is on the rise, due largely to the social isolation and increased financial pressures on families brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Sally Nicholes, Managing Partner of Nicholes Family Lawyers, facilitates an important discussion on domestic violence in the age of COVID-19. In this video, Sally speaks with:

  • The Honourable Chief Justice William Alstergren of the Family Court of Australia and the Federal Circuit Court,
  • Jessica Stott, acting CEO of the Women’s Information and Referral Exchange (WIRE),
  • Vincent Papaleo, Director of Vincent Papaleo & Associates,
  • Helen Matthews, Principal Lawyer at the Women’s Legal Service Victoria, and
  • Alison MacDonald, acting CEO of Domestic Violence Victoria.

This webinar is also supported by Victorian Women’s Lawyers.
