Policing COVID-19 Restrictions – Your Rights During a Pandemic

How are your rights affected when pandemic restrictions are enforced?

What can you do if you find yourself on the other side of these new laws?

Join representatives from Fitzroy Legal Service, the Police Accountability Project and Justice Connect to discuss how people in Victoria have been policed during the COVID-19 pandemic, which communities are being affected more than others, and where to next if you have been fined, charged, or treated unfairly by police.

In this webinar, you will hear from:

  • Samantha Sowerwine, Principal Lawyer at Justice Connect Homeless Law
  • Paul Kidd, Lawyer at Fitzroy Legal Service
  • Daniel Nguyen, Advocacy Coordinator at Flemington & Kensington Community Legal Centre

This discussion is facilitated by Odette Shenfield, Outreach Lawyer at Fitzroy Legal Service.

Presented by Fitzroy Legal Service

This is a recording of a live Law Week webinar that was held on 22 May 2020.
