About us

Melbourne Activist Legal Support (MALS) supports activists to defend their own civil and political rights.

We run Activist Legal Rights training, provide resources and up to date information on the rights to protest in Victoria.

We field trained Legal Observer Teams at protest events, monitoring and reporting on police actions that limit or violate human rights.

We train organisors and activist groups in activist legal support approaches and strategies and can help coordinate legal support in conjunction with law firms and community legal centres.

Why? Because good activist legal support builds stronger and more resilient movements. Stronger social movements means more democracy, and a more sustainable, robust and inclusive society for us all.
