Attorney General's Department - new arrangements for client enquiries to Local Court registries


The Attorney General's Department has advised the Association that new arrangements are being put in place concerning client enquiries to Local Court registries.

Under the new arrangements, enquiries will in the first instance be referred to LawAccess NSW for legal information and assistance.�

Local Court registry staff and chamber services will continue to be available to provide specific advice in relation to Local Court procedure and processes.

The new arrangements are set out in a brochure released by the Department entitled "Getting help with legal and court matters".

The Department has advised that the new service delivery model will be introduced over the next few months.
