Due to the COVID-19 emergency, appointments with the Legal Advice Bureau are currently on hold.

A first port of call

The Law Society is a first port of call for anybody who believes they have a legal problem, or who is just seeking reassurance about the legal process. The Society receives some 9,000 telephone calls from the public each year. When you call the Law Society, we can help you by referring you to a law firm with expertise in a particular area of law, helping you find a lawyer who speaks your language, or helping you find free or low cost legal services.

You can contact the Law Society on 02 6274 0300. 

You can also view our range of fact sheets that answer common legal questions.

Quick search online

Members of the public can also find lawyers or law firms with expertise in particular areas of law by searching our online database. Our database can also help you find firms located in particular areas of the ACT, or lawyers who can speak your language. 

You can visit the Find a Firm or Find a Lawyer search functions on our website.
