Northern Territory Law Handbook

Abstract

The NT Law Handbook is an easy-to-read guide to law in the Northern Territory. This approach to providing the community with plain language information on a comprehensive range of legal topics has been developed by AustLII, the NT Legal Aid Commission and the Darwin Community Legal Service, with the support of the Law Society of the Northern Territory Public Purposes Trust. Over 70 people from the legal community, government and community agencies donated their time, expertise and effort to ensure that the text is up-to-date and accurate. All sections have links to the primary legislation and case law as well as further information, including contacts should you require legal advice. Simply browse and click on any of the more than 100 topic headings, or use the search box in the top right corner to search the content to find what you need.
