Free Legal Advice by Tasmania Legal Aid

Tasmania Legal Aid provides a range of quality legal services across Tasmania through four offices. Our focus is on economically and socially disadvantaged Tasmanians.

We provide preventative services such as information about the law through our website and through community legal education sessions. We deliver early intervention services through our telephone advice line, face-to-face consultations, duty lawyer services, minor assistance, and mediation services. We also provide legal representation in court delivered through grants of aid to private lawyers and to in-house lawyers.

Legal Advice – Everyone can receive free advice from our telephone advice service or our clinic advice sessions where you can speak face-to-face with a lawyer.

Representation – We have a Duty Lawyer located at the Magistrates Court who may be able to help you, if you require genuine assistance.

Family Dispute Resolution (FDR) – We offer FDR conferences in family law matters to people who might not have otherwise been able to obtain our representation or assistance.

Community legal education and information – Our lawyers run free seminars on a variety of legal topics to schools, community groups or organisations throughout Tasmania.
