Melbourne Activist Legal Support (MALS) supports activists to defend their own civil and political rights though the provision of training, resources and up to date information on the rights to protest in the State of Victoria.
MALS can provide direct legal support at major demonstrations: monitoring police engagement with protesters through the deployment of Legal Observer Teams if and when capacity allows.
We can provide legal information or training, and help coordinate legal support in conjunction with law firms and community legal centres.
We work towards an informed and robust civil society by supporting groups and communities to undertake grassroots political action.
