More About Street Law

Produced in collaboration with students at Youthworx Media, each episode tells a real or imagined story about a young person who comes across a police officer or a PSO on the street. The stories raise important questions about police or PSO powers and young people’s rights in different situations.

Victoria Legal Aid will be keeping the Street Law videos and education kit up to date on their website here.
