Getting off the Referral Roundabout

Effective legal referral

By Kingsford Legal Centre

This DVD is essential for anyone who works with clients experiencing legal problems. It is accompanied by a 25 page workbook downloadable from the Kingsford Legal Centre website at:

Making an effective referral is a challenging task that not only requires strong interpersonal skills but also an up to date knowledge of the diverse and complex range of service providers to whom an appropriate referral can be made. Training staff and volunteers responsible for making referrals is essential if clients are to avoid being sent from agency to agency, never finding the one that can assist them with their problem.

Getting off the Referral Roundabout looks at issues such as:

  • valuing and respecting a client
  • communicating effectively
  • participating in and knowing about own agency
  • identifying a client’s information and referral needs
  • knowledge of service providers
  • making effective referrals
  • basic knowledge required about the law, legal system and legal service providers
  • preparing a client for an interview with a lawyer
  • finding plain language legal information online
