If you’re representing yourself in the Federal Court or Federal Circuit Court, a little legal help can go a long way. Our Self Representation Service provides legal help across some matters in NSW, ACT, Victoria and Tasmania. So people have a fair chance at a better outcome.
People eligible for assistance in NSW, Victoria, ACT or Tasmania may receive a one-hour appointment with a volunteer lawyer. The appointment will be at the Federal Court in Sydney or Melbourne or via phone or video conferencing. The appointment may include:
Depending on the nature of the matter and the circumstances, eligible people may be offered more than one appointment to support them throughout their case. Remember, we provide task-orientated assistance in preparation for court, we don’t provide legal representation.
