The July 2021 issue of Legal Aid News is now available.

Please note that Legal Aid NSW offices are currently closed to the public until further notice. However, all phone lines are still operational. For legal help call LawAccess NSW on 1300 888 529 or your local Legal Aid NSW office.

In this month’s edition, you’ll read about the availability of a telephone mediation scheme for parents wishing to resolve issues related to the pandemic, the launch of a new First Nations cadetship program at community legal centres, and additional funding announced by the NSW Government that will ensure legal services are more accessible across the state.

We feature important updates for panel lawyers such as an increase in fees and changes to our policies and pilot eligibility.  

This edition includes information about our upcoming events, along with useful resources and publications for community workers, private practitioners, and the general public.
