Being part of the community is an important element of the Law Society’s work. It engages with the community in several ways to provide support, education and access to justice.
Through its education programs and court tours for school and tour groups, the Society’s mission is to educate people about the rule of law and strengthen awareness of rights and responsibilities under the law. In providing public access to the Old Court House Law Museum, the oldest building in the city of Perth, the Law Society opens its doors to an internationally significant collection that is free for the public to enjoy and to learn about Western Australia’s social and legal history. In “How a Lawyer Can Help You”, we provide valuable information for members of the public on how to engage with a lawyer and provide guidance in asking the right questions in preparation for finding the appropriate legal assistance. Complementing this is our extensive online service Find a Lawyer which connects members of the public with the right lawyer for their particular circumstances.
Available 24/7 online, Find a Lawyer helps give community members control and comfort when seeking legal assistance.
