Women’s Legal Service Tasmania

Women’s Legal Service is a free community legal service funded by the Commonwealth Attorney-General’s Department. Whilst our offices are in Hobart we provide legal services for women throughout Tasmania.

Women’s Legal Service provides confidential and free legal advice and referral on all legal matters including Family Law, Family Violence, Civil and Criminal Law, Estate and Property Law. Our primary contact is through our free telephone advice line.

In addition to providing legal advice we conduct Community Legal Education sessions and workshops throughout the community. We also produce legal information brochures and booklets and work towards making the legal system more accessible and responsive to the issues affecting women through law reform.

Women’s Legal Service is managed and staffed by women who are sensitive to the diverse needs of individual women and groups within the community.
