FBLEP Services to Schools
Lawyer Visits to Schools Network
The Lawyer Visits to Schools Network (LVSN)is now well established and I encourage you to consider incorporating a free lawyer visit to your school, metropolitan or regional, in your planning for the 2016 school year. The process of requesting a visit is straightforward; just complete the expression of interest details on the back of the flyer and forward the request to the FBLEP - (Flyer/Expression of Interest).
FBLEP Online Student and Teacher Resources
Don’t forget the wealth of legal and civics education resources (student and teacher) available on the FBLEP Education Resources page of the Law Society of Western Australia website.
Regional and Remote Schools Loan Box Programme
The Constitutional Centre of Western Australia, The Parliamentary Education Office, The Francis Burt Law Education Programme and The Electoral Education Centre provide a number of loan boxes for use by schools in the remote and regional areas of the State. Further information about the Regional and Remote Schools Loan Box Programme can be obtained via the Constitutional Centre.
