As part of Law Week, the Commission launched a free Legal Health Check-Up tool to help South Australians identify and address legal problems.
The check-up quickly pinpoints a range of common legal problems – ranging from neighbour disputes to debts and fines, as well as domestic violence matters and workplace issues.
“Our physical health is very important, but so too is legal health,” said Director Gabrielle Canny when launching the new resource at the Adelaide Railway Station.
When problems are identified, we can refer the client to the service that best suits their needs. For instance, this can involve us providing free legal assistance, advice and information – or legal representation to those who qualify for legal aid.
The Legal Health Check was launched by our legal education team at the Adelaide Railway Station, and attracted praise in State Parliament and widespread media coverage.
