As a student, you have a few avenues to access free and confidential legal advice:
ANUSA Legal Service provides free and confidential legal advice to ANU students and ANU student clubs and societies. All legal advice is provided by or under the supervision of an experienced practising lawyer. We help students with a range of legal problems including tenancy, migration and visa, employment law, contracts, intellectual property, defamation, discrimination and other areas.
Legal Aid ACT helps people in the ACT with their legal problems, especially people who are socially or economically disadvantaged. They can help in criminal law, family law and some civil law matters. Their mission is to promote a just society in the Australian Capital Territory. You can also access the Legal Aid Helpline on 1300 654 314.
