Free and Confidential Training Professional Creating Change Assisting Women

Women's Legal Service Victoria is a not-for-profit organisation that has been providing free legal services to women since 1982. We work with women experiencing disadvantage to address legal issues arising from relationship breakdown or violence.


If you are a victim-survivor of sexual assault who has questions about the legal issues around telling your story or being identified publicly, please contact our free legal advice and referral service.

This service is staffed by female lawyers, who specialise in legal issues arising from violence against women. Our lawyers can advise individual women on how the current law might affect them.

This new service operates from Mondays to Fridays between 9am and 5pm.
