Launch of ACT Law Handbook & Legal Aid ACT Chat Line
On the 10th October, John Wilson, Managing Legal Director in our Employment section, and James Connolly, Law Clerk, attended the launch of the ACT Law Handbook and the Legal Aid ACT Chat Line. Both initiatives reflect ongoing attempts to make legal services and legal terminology more accessible to the general public as the rate of people seeking legal advice continues to increase. These initiatives complement the in-person services that Legal Aid ACT already provides noting that there are some who will be unable to readily access either initiative and will rely on in-person services.
The handbook is available at Legal Aid ACT
