Legal Aid ACT’s Response to Corona-virus (COVID-19)
The health and safety of Legal Aid’s staff and clients is our priority in the current health emergency.
Legal Aid ACT is currently following the ACT Government recommendations in regards to social distancing and this may mean changes in the way we deliver our services to you including:
- Making telephone appointments with your lawyer.
- Limiting face to face conferences with your lawyer and other staff.
- If face to face conferences are required with your lawyer, your lawyer may limit the amount of people in your conference.
- Changing the way you attend Court – your lawyer will discuss appropriate arrangements with you.
If you have been exposed to someone who has coronavirus or feel unwell please do not approach reception and call the Helpline on 1300 654 314 or email on Legalaid@legalaidact.org.au us so we can determine the best way to assist you.
