JusticeNet SA is an independent, not-for-profit legal service that provides free legal help to individuals and charitable organisations in South Australia (and the Northern Territory via our Federal Courts Self-Representation Service).
Our aim is to provide a 'safety net' for individuals who cannot afford a lawyer or get the help they need from elsewhere. We provide a referral service for low-income and disadvantaged South Australians experiencing civil law issues. Our Pro Bono Referral Service also assists charitable and community groups. Our Refugee and Asylum Seeker Project provides legal advice and representation.
We also operate a Self-Representation Service which provides direct legal advice and assistance to people representing themselves in court.
JusticeNet SA is managed by a voluntary Management Committee that is elected annually by members.
JusticeNet SA has the strong support of the legal profession in South Australia. Our members include local and interstate law firms, law schools, barristers chambers, corporate legal units and individual members.
JusticeNet SA is an accredited Community Legal Centre and member of the South Australian Council of Community Legal Services (SACCLS).
JusticeNet SA is a member of Pro Bono Access Australia, the national network of pro bono legal services.
JusticeNet SA is funded from a range of sources including membership contributions, government and philanthropic grants, private donations and fundraising.
