Find Legal Answers

Stanton Library has a collection of LIAC (Legal Information Access Centre) resources to help you find legal answers. They are kept in the reference area on the ground floor of the Library. 

If you are looking for legal answers, start with the State Library of NSW's Find Legal Answers website.

In the library you will find the Legal Toolkit - a collection of easy to read, practical books about the law.

Hot Topics guides are published by the State Library of NSW. It is a plain language series about recent changes and current debates in the law. Although they are no longer published in hard copy, those published before 2014 can be located on the Stanton LIAC shelves on the ground floor of the Library. To access the full, current list of Hot Topics Guides, follow the link to the State Library website.

There are also some law textbooks for more specialised information- these can be found on the LIAC collection shelves at Stanton.

A collection of Legal Information Pamphlets with plain language legal information from a number of government sources can be found on the State Library website. Pamphlets can be downloaded or ordered online. Many of the pamphlets are also available in a range of community languages.
