11 May 2016 Family and Consumer Laws are Focus of Library’s Law Week

Experts in family law and consumer rights will be available at the Harry Bailey Memorial Library in National Law Week (May 16-22) to answer any questions residents may have on these subjects.

Legal Aid Family Law Solicitor Jane Corcoran will speak on a range of family law and parenting issues such as mediation, litigation and communication on Monday, May 16, from 2pm – 3.30pm. Jane is an independent children’s lawyer, which means she can represent children as well as parents.

Fair Trading NSW will be at the Library on Thursday, May 19, from 2pm – 3.30pm to speak about Consumer Rights and Australian Consumer Law including topics such as refunds and your rights when dealing with an online business based overseas.

Following the event, refreshments will be available and people will have the opportunity to talk with the mediators about their own individual circumstances.

“Each year, the Library hosts a Law Week event that brings legal experts or advocates directly to the public,” said Enzo Accadia, Council’s Section Leader Community Programs. 

“These have always been very popular and each time we try and cover a new area of legislation.”

For further information please contact Coffs Harbour Library on 6648 4900.

No bookings are required and each session is free.
