Our publications

The NT Legal Aid Commission produces a range of publications to help the community understand the law in the Northern Territory. You can order copies by calling 1800 019 343, emailing us at info@legalaid.nt.gov.au or filling in a publications order form.

The law changes often, and we might not be able to update our publications straight away. To find out if a publication is up to date, please check the publication date, which is on the cover or in the first few pages. You can also call the Legal Aid Helpline on 1800 019 343.

For general information about law in the NT, see LawInfoNT or the NT Law Handbook.

Publications give general information about the law. If you need legal advice please call our Legal Aid Helpline on 1800 019 343 to arrange an appointment.
