Community Legal Service
The Community Legal Service provides free legal information, advice and representation on most non-criminal matters including:
- Social Security/Centrelink
- Credit and debt
- Consumer issues and complaints
What to do if you have a legal issue?
Please contact us on freecall 1800 812 953 to access free legal information or to make a telephone or face-to-face appointment with one of our community lawyers. Appointments are generally available every weekday except public holidays.
After hours clinics
Our free after hours advice sessions are held three times a week at different locations around Darwin. You can talk confidentially about your legal problem with a lawyer, who will give you advice, suggest further action, and in some cases may help you to write a letter or prepare other simple documents. Clients may attend these free clinics more than once, and there is no need to book in advance.
