A strong voice and strong support for Victorian Landcare
Not-for-profit-law provides training on a range of common legal issues faced by community organisations and individuals within them. One of their many useful training resources is an ongoing series of 75 minute webinars - upcoming sessions details below.
Data Governance Webinar
Tuesday 25 February - 12.45-2.00pm
Data, we all have it, we all use it, but how do we govern it?
Strong data governance presents real opportunities for community organisations. Responsible collection, storage, management and use of data can enable organisations to innovate, improve processes and gain a competitive edge. It is also an internal ‘insurance policy’ to protect an organisation and its key stakeholders.
In this webinar, Justice Connect will be joined by a key member of Clyde & Co’s leading cyber and data privacy team to discuss all things data governance, in particular how your organisation can make sure it has strong data governance practices in place.
Get #social not #sued – Social Media and the Law Webinar
Tuesday 10 March - 12.45-2.00pm
Social media can help not-for-profit organisations expand their reach and grow awareness for their cause, but it also has the potential to cause damage to the organisation, its clients, employees or volunteers.
Sign up today for this webinar and we’ll step you through the key legal risks when not-for-profit organisations publish content on social media, including: privacy, confidentiality, intellectual property and defamation.

Sending in samples is relatively easy through the click of a few buttons via the Centre for Invasive Species Solutions RabbitScan application.
