Legal Observers NSW

Who we are

Legal Observers NSW is a growing collective of volunteer lawyers, human rights advocates and law students. We monitor and report on police action at protests, distribute information about protest rights and facilitate access to legal support.

We acknowledge First Nations across this continent and the surrounding islands on which we do legal observing work. They continue to govern with, care for, and have authority as Country. Sovereignty was never ceded. 

What we do

We organise and train teams of legal observers to monitor police action at protests. Get involved.

We produce incident reports about protest policing. Read the latest report.

We facilitate access to legal support for those facing charges in relation to a protest action. Contact us.

We engage in community legal education about protest rights. See relevant resources.
