We provide free legal services in several areas including information, referral, advice, casework assistance, community legal education, and policy and law reform.
The DDLS works actively towards the eradication of disability discrimination and facilitates and promotes justice for people with disabilities through community legal education sessions to professional and community groups to raise disability awareness and provide information on the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 (Cth) and the Equal Opportunity Act 1995 (Vic).

Up Coming - Law Week 2013
Description of Upcoming Event:
‘Tatts by Hand’
‘Tatts by Hand’ is 1.5 to 2 hour workshop on the application of anti-discrimination laws to body art.
As the popularity of body art – such as tattoos and piercings – grows in our society, issues of discrimination can arise in the context of employment, education and the provision of goods and services. Subsequently, this workshop aims to educate individuals on their rights and responsibilities under Australian anti-discrimination laws and the effect of these laws on body art.
