NSW Government Providing Free Legal Help
LawAccess NSW provides free legal help for people who have a legal problem
LawAccess NSW began operations in 2001 as a joint initiative of the Department of Justice, Legal Aid NSW, Law Society of NSW and the NSW Bar Association.
It is the starting point for people who have a legal problem in NSW.
LawAccess NSW provides free legal help for people who have a legal problem in NSW through two service channels:
• A telephone service where people calling 1300 888 529 are provided with legal information and referrals from a team of experienced information officers, and in some cases, legal advice from our team of civil, criminal and family law lawyers.
• A website, www.lawaccess.nsw.gov.au, where people who have access to the Internet and who are able to self-help, can find information about a range of legal topics. This includes detailed information and guides to representing yourself in a court or tribunal.
Since 2001, LawAccess NSW has assisted over 2 million people with their legal problems and provided advice to over 200,000 people. Its website has had over 3.5 million visitors.
