NEW – Specialised support
The Law Society of Western Australia understands that people face many challenges in their lives and that sometimes these require specialised support. We believe the counsellors providing this support should be specialists with specific social or cultural experience, knowledge and understanding.
LawCare offers access to one session of specialist support per annum (available during business hours only).
These specialist support helplines include:
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples helpline:
Telephone 1300 287 432
