Online information

Estimated reading: 1 minute 22 views

There are now many Internet sites offering general or more specific legal information, apart from this site.

Victoria Legal Aid – This site also explains VLA guidelines and policies and provides access to a range of plain English publications on legal issues as well as information about VLAs guidelines and policies.

Law Institute Victoria -This site has information of assistance to lawyers rather than the general public.

The Law Handbook Online – This site will assist the search for state legislation or information, policies and links.

There are also several other commercial sites that provide some legal advice and offer advertising for law firms at the same time. New sites are being created all the time – a search engine such as Google offers literally hundreds of websites. However, as with any online information, you need to check that the site you are accessing is a reliable and authoritative source of legal information, and not just a forum for expression of an individual’s view (possibly inaccurate) of the law.
