Plain language training

Our plain language training gives you the best chance of getting your message across.

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.

Our goal is to share our knowledge and expertise broadly across the legal and community sectors – to build an army of people who can help us improve the legal information available to Victorians.
