Noosa Library is helping to break down the barriers between our very learned friends, their very legal turns of phrase and the bamboozled rest of us.
Learning to understand the unfamiliar terminology and complex structure of legal language will be the focus of a series of presentations to be held at the Library in Wallace Park, during Adult Learners' Week, September 1st to 8th.
With the goal of promoting the importance of understanding legal processes for oneself and/or immediate family members, the Legal Literacy Expo will feature government and private professionals in free forums as follows :
