Can I get legal aid?

You have to apply for a grant of legal aid if you want a lawyer to represent you in court. Demand for our services is high, so we use strict criteria when granting aid for legal representation. This way we can make sure we are using our funding to help those who are least able to afford a lawyer.

Application for legal aid forms are available at all Legal Aid offices and on our website. To find out more visit or phone 1300 65 11 88.
