Legal Information

Do you want to know what to do about your neighbour's barking dog, or are you having trouble with Strata Title? What about how to write a will?

Find Legal Answers is a free state-wide service providing easy-to-read, practical books, which answer everyday questions about the law. These books are carefully selected and regularly updated by specialist librarians in the State Library of NSW. 

Find Legal Answers guides you through online information as well as showing you what is available in your local library.

Find Legal Answers can also help you find free legal advice services if you need to speak to a lawyer.

The service is an initiative of the State Library of NSW and the Law Foundation of NSW, jointly funded by the State Library and the Public Purpose Fund.

Coffs Harbour Library also provides access to the Law Books for Libraries Collection, which is a more advanced collection of resources for the researcher or student.
