“The new website will significantly enhance the Legal Aid Commission’s capacity to provide information about the law to the Tasmanian community,” Ms Goodwin said.

“It will be easier to navigate, is adaptive to mobile and tablet platforms, and is available in different languages. It’s also the first Tasmanian Government agency website to have an audio function to offer literacy support.

“It will play an important role in empowering people to understand their legal rights and responsibilities and prevent legal problems from arising or escalating.”

The website upgrade was funded through a grant from the Solicitors’ Guarantee Fund.
