A new series of videos have been developed to demystify the experience of attending the Magistrates Courts.
The series of four short videos have been developed through collaboration between the Department of Justice, Association for Children with Disability (Tas), Brain Injury Association of Tasmania, Speak Out Association of Tasmania, the Magistrates Court, Equal Opportunity Tasmania and Tasmania Legal Aid.
The collaborative approach has ensured that the videos meet the specific needs of the target audience of people with disability and/or low literacy
There are four videos in the series which were made possible by a grant from the Law Foundation of Tasmania:
The videos will provide a valuable resource for a range of vulnerable Tasmanians who may otherwise have difficulty understanding the requirements and processes of going to Court.
The Attorney-General has recorded a short message to launch the videos.
The videos are available on the Magistrates Court website https://www.magistratescourt.tas.gov.au/going_to_court/going-to-court-videos
