NSW Legal Information and Referral Forum

The Legal Referral Forum was established in 2002 to bring together key service providers in NSW who provide referral to clients with legal problems. It was expanded to the Legal Information and Referral Forum (LIRF) in 2006. It reports to the NSW Legal Assistance Forum (NLAF) after each meeting.

In 2018, the Foundation ceased as convener of LIRF. This role has been taken on by Legal Aid NSW and the Legal Information Access Centre (LIAC) at the State Library of NSW.

The next LIRF meeting will be held on Tuesday 3 September 2019. More details will be available soon.
