What is legal aid in Australia?

Legal aid refers to the system through which certain categories of persons, who are more vulnerable, can access legal services in Australia without having to worry about the financial aspects.

This is guaranteed under the Australian law so that persons with low income/no income can benefit from the right of fair representation in front of various allegations, correct or false.

In the list below, you can discover more about legal aid:

  • at a national level, there are 8 legal aid commissions;
  • in order to benefit from legal aid, a person must comply with the income requirement – established by the means test, which can set up a minimum financial contribution of the applicant according to the Section 36(1)(a) and Section 36(1)(b) of the Legal Aid Commission Act 1979;
  • the means test does not apply in certain circumstances, such as for family law (Section 68L of the Family Law Act 1975) or for civil law (Military Rehabilitation and Compensation Act 1988);
  • each commission follows its own local directives – for instance, New South Wales (NSW) follows the Legal Aid Commission Act 1979 (NSW) and applicants can be represented by lawyers in Sydney (the capital of NSW).
