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.

This training will cover:

What is a Legal Observer and what is a Legal Observer NOT?
How do I take LO notes?
What do I do if someone gets stopped and searched?
How do I monitor an arrest?
How do I look after myself when LOing?

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.

Please select “going” if you definitely know you can come.
