Women’s Legal Service Tasmania is a community legal service funded by the Commonwealth Attorney-General’s Department and operates a free and statewide service, with offices in Hobart, Burnie and Launceston.
Women’s Legal Service is managed and staffed by women who are sensitive to the diverse needs of individual women and groups within the Tasmanian community.
From the Hobart office, the Women’s Legal Service Tasmania provides confidential and free legal advice and referral to women right across Tasmania through our telephone advice line. The legal staff are able to provide advice and referral on all legal matters including:
In addition to providing telephone advice, the Women’s Legal Service Tasmania are at times able to take on casework for clients throughout Tasmania who need representation with their legal matters.
The Burnie office has been operational since April 2016 after Women’s Legal Service Tasmania was chosen to open a specialist family violence unit in the north-west of Tasmania as part of the Australian Government’s response to rising family violence in our communities.
The Burnie office provides legal information, advice and support on any legal matter to those clients in the north-west of the state who are experiencing, or who have experienced, family violence.
The Women’s Legal Service Tasmania's presence in Launceston has been funded by the Tasmanian State Government for the 2016-2017 year to provide advice and support to women in the north-east of the state who are experiencing, or who have experienced, family violence.
Women from north-eastern Tasmania are able to contact the service through a dedicated telephone line, and are able to make a face-to-face appointment with one of the solicitors who travels from Hobart to staff the Launceston office for two days each week.
For legal advice or assistance, you can contact the Women's Legal Service through the telephone advice line or by calling the Burnie office directly if you are in north-west Tasmania, or our Launceston office in the north-east. For all other information or enquiries, please call our Hobart office.
