About Us

The Legal Aid Commission of Tasmania is a statutory body set up by the Legal Aid Commission Act 1990 (Tas). We commenced operation on 1 January 1991. The Legal Aid Commission of Tasmania operates at arms-length from Government but is accountable to the Tasmanian Attorney-General, the Hon Dr Vanessa Goodwin MLC.

We are the largest government-funded legal assistance service in Tasmania and we play a central role in providing access to justice for disadvantaged Tasmanians. The Commission is governed by a Board of eight and has a staff of 64 full-time employees.
