You’ll often see legal observers at demonstrations wearing bright orange bibs marked “Legal Observer”. Despite having no official status, legal observers have a role recognised by bodies from the Courts to the United Nations.

Our standard Legal Observer training is very comprehensive, covering:

Monitoring arrests
Stop & Search law & procedure
Arrestee support
How to provide good witnesses and nail inappropriate policing

If you’re an experienced activist there will be parts you know already, but the depth we go into should give you more confidence and knowledge of how to deal with the police. Whether you’re in a group or attending as an individual, this extensive training offers you important skills to support activists.

Please arrive promptly for the start time, we’ve loads to get through! Bring vegan food with you to share for lunch. Little Man also sells lovely food and coffees and other drinks.

Places are free but limited to what the venue can hold. Please select “going” if you definitely know you can come.
