Apply for legal aid
How do you apply for legal aid?
You can apply for legal aid through either the Legal Aid Commission or through a private lawyer. The choice is yours. The same guidelines and tests will apply.
To apply through the Legal Aid Commission, simply come into one of our clinic advice sessions in Burnie, Devonport, Launceston or Hobart. You don’t need an appointment. To find out the times and days in your area see clinic advice information.
To apply through a private lawyer, make an appointment with a lawyer of your choice.
Find a lawyer
The Law Society of Tasmania has a database of law firms which you can search to find a lawyer in your local area.
If you need help finding a lawyer, please call our telephone advice service for a referral.
