Education Act Prosecutions
The Education Act Working Group aims to improve access to legal services (in particular legal advice and representation) for parents and children involved in Compulsory School Order (CSO) proceedings in the Children’s Court and Education Act prosecutions (EA prosecutions) in the Local Court.
The Working Group will note the particular issues arising out of Education Act litigation in disadvantaged communities in regional and remote NSW.
