Tasmanian Law Handbook

About the Handbook

The Tasmanian Law Handbook ('the Handbook') has been developed as an easy-to-read guide to accident compensation law in Tasmania.

How to Use This Handbook

The Tasmanian Law Handbook is an introduction to the law for people who would like to know more about the law. They could be coming into contact with the legal system, or be facing a neighbourhood dispute, or a disagreement with government; they might just be looking to know more about the law. This handbook is intended to be accessible to anyone who needs to know more about how the law might affect their life.

The handbook has been divided into a number of sections to address the subjects that most commonly arise as issues for people. This includes such topic areas as ‘Housing’, ‘Government’, ‘Community’, and ‘Criminal Law’.

The information contained here is not intended to be a replacement for legal advice, it is a resource to help inform people of the law. The handbook serves as an introduction to the law in Tasmania for everyone. For legal advice, please look to the Legal Assistance chapter in this section, where the contact details for free legal advice services are provided, as well as law firms specialising in different areas of the law.


The content of the Handbook is made available as a public service for information purposes only. Every effort is made to ensure the content is accurate but no warranty is made as to the accuracy, currency or completeness of its content at any time. The law is complex and constantly changing. Do not rely on this Handbook as a substitute for legal advice. Seek expert advice if you have a specific problem. Contacts for legal service providers have been included throughout the Handbook. No responsibility is accepted for any loss, damage or injury, financial or otherwise, suffered by any person acting upon or relying on information contained in it or omitted from it.
