 What is JusticeNet?


Supreme Court Self-Representation Service

This is a new legal service by JusticeNet SA; it provides free legal advice and assistance to eligible litigants-in-person (including prospective litigants-in-person) involved in civil proceedings in the Supreme Court.

Pro bono solicitors are available to give clients advice and assistance with discrete legal tasks during 45 min to 1 hour appointments.  Clients can schedule multiple appointments throughout the course of their matter, but they remain responsible for the conduct of their case at all time.  The Service does not provide representation, rather, it aims to help clients present their own case in the best possible light.

For more information about this Service, you can contact JusticeNet via: Phone: (08) 8313 5005 or Website: www.justicenet.org.au/srs.html.

**Please note: the Service is a pilot project that will operate for 12 months from 25 September 2013. The Service is open on Wednesdays only.**
