Free legal information online

Access to accurate and up to date Queensland Law is now free and just a click of the mouse away.

State Member for Noosa Glen Elmes welcomes the game changing initiative by the Caxton Legal Centre to publish their Queensland Law Book on line, helping Mums and Dads, business owners and victims of crimes navigate their way through emotional and confusing times.

“Caxton Legal has produced this comprehensive and user friendly legal resource for some time in hard copy but now it is available for everyone, anytime and at no cost. Even if you don’t have a computer at home you can visit your local library or internet café to find out your rights and responsibilities.

“This is an exhaustive guide to the law written by more than 50 legal experts in plain English levelling the playing field and removing one of the biggest barriers to justice, for the entire community to benefit.

“As a State Member I am often approached for help in legal matters and whilst I am not a lawyer I still find myself listening to many constituents who are struggling with a number of life’s challenges and changes of circumstance.

“If you or someone you know is looking for reliable information and guidance regarding marriage and divorce, parenting after separation, work matters, contracts and consumer law, victims of crime, domestic violence, wills and estates visit queenslandlawhandbook.org.au,” Mr Elmes said.1169
