E5 Article 7 picBarwon Community Legal Service Lawyer, Lee Bolton, joined staff from Fitzroy Legal Service to hold a Community Workers Forum in Geelong in February this year. Fitzroy Legal Service presented an overview of criminal law, sentencing and the duties of care and confidentiality. Lee’s session focused on Fines and Infringements and local workers were given the opportunity to learn more about the infringement system and the options available for dealing with an infringement.
