The civil law practice helps resolve legal issues that impact on people's everyday lives such as debts, unpaid fines, discrimination, tenancy issues, Centrelink disputes and more. Our focus is on helping people to resolve legal issues as early as possible.
We provide free legal advice in a wide range of areas, help at some courts and tribunals, and grants of legal aid for matters which are eligible under our policies.
Community workers play a critical role in connecting people to legal assistance services. The Law for Everyday Life DVD explains how you can spot a civil law problem and where help is available. We also provide training in civil law for front-line staff, and education sessions for the public.
