Find Legal Answers

This collection contains legal Information about the law in NSW for members of the community facing a legal problem or issue.

The Find Legal Answers subject pathway provides access to current information about the law in NSW. The pathway lists key resources, organised by topic, that are available on the web and in print. This guide covers the breadth of legal issues facing most people including family law, housing & neighbours, wills & estate planning, crime, debt, going to court, employment, dispute resolution, consumer law, compensation and more.

Resources are selected and regularly reviewed by specialist librarians at the Legal Information Access Centre (LIAC), State Library of NSW. Resources are grouped in categories, starting with introductory or simple summaries of the topic followed by more detailed resources.

All resources are freely available on the web, in the Sutherland Library print collection or in the State Library of NSW.

If you need help with more detailed legal enquiries not covered by the resources in this collection you can visit the Legal Information Access Centre in the State Library, where specialist librarians are available to assist clients to access the extensive legal resources of the State Library of NSW.
