Legal advice/representation if you have to go to court or are charged with a criminal offence.



TACLS provides criminal law assistance.

Custody notifications

When a person of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander descent is taken into custody by Tasmanian police, the police are required to notify TACLS. TACLS can then offer pre-interview advice and representation.
