Making the law easier to understand


Have you ever tried to find the answer to a legal problem and found yourself on an information merry-go-round and just wanting to go to sleep?

The Victoria Law Foundation's Everyday-Law (new window) website provides heaps of easy-to-understand legal information.

The law is an essential part of our lives. The more you know about it the better off you are. If you know your rights and responsibilities you can make better decisions about legal issues and protect yourself.

That’s the theory. But in practice a lot of the information out there is way too complicated for what most people want. The good stuff is often hard to find.

Everyday-Law brings all the best material together in one place - jargon-free material for the general public written by a range of trustworthy organisations.

On Everyday-Law you'll find a guide to a range of legal issues, news about legal issues that affect you, and advice on how to:

  • Answer your legal questions
  • Find free or low-cost legal help
  • Learn about the legal system

So if you've got a legal issue you're grappling with, whether it's a problem with debt, health, work, family or crime, check out Everyday-Law (new window) to find a way to deal with it.
