eResources > Find Legal Answers


Find Legal Answers is a joint initiative of the State Library of New South Wales and the Law and Justice Foundation of NSW. Maitland City Library is part of the statewide Find Legal Answers network providing a collection of books, pamphlets and online resources with information about the law and legal issues.

If you have a question about the law or how a legal issue may affect you, Maitland City Library‚Äôs Legal Answers collection will provide you with a range of authoritative, plain language guides to the law.

Each branch library holds a Legal Tool Kit, a collection of plain language guides to a number of everyday legal issues as well as pamphlets published by accredited legal agencies such as Legal Aid NSW, the Australian Securities and Investments Commission, the Office of Fair Trading and the Human Rights and Equal Opportunities Commission.

As well as the Legal Tool Kit, Maitland Library has a set of Law Books for Libraries, a larger and more detailed collection of legal books.

Library staff will provide assistance in using the collection and accessing websites, but do not provide advice on legal questions.

The Find Legal Answers Website provides a directory to agencies providing free legal advice and assistance.

Hot Topics is published four times a year to provide commentary and updates on current and changing areas of the law.

For HSC students the Legal Studies Research Guide is an invaluable resource to assist you with your studies.
