Civil Law

Civil law covers a wide array of areas. Civil law can refer to consumer law, employment law, housing and tenancy law, personal injuries, and even the NDIS and Centrelink.

Because Civil law is such a large area, with different areas requiring specialist knowledge, it can be difficult to find which organisation or person is best placed to help. The first place to start is by using the Community Legal Centres Queensland Legal Centre Search tool. In this search engine, you can search the general area of law and find a Community Legal Centre near you. Alternatively, you can call Legal Aid Queensland on 1300 65 11 88 for assistance with finding legal help.

If you know what type of area your civil law issue relates to, the Queensland Law Handbook can be a great resource to understand what the next available steps are. Additionally, Caxton Legal Centre have some self-help kits to assist people to navigate areas of civil law.
