Access for clients
Legal Aid WA provides access to justice for people in special need. We take into account the many financial and social factors that may cause problems for clients such as age, gender, disability, language difficulties, geographical location and financial stress. Our website has comprehensive information about many legal topics, as well as information about our services and the contact details for our 11 offices located across the state.
This website has been designed to be as accessible to as many users as possible. The accessibility features available on this site include:
instructions for resizing text
instructions for printing pages
links to software plug-ins users may require to view the content.
You can make the text (print) larger or smaller on this site by using the 'Text Size' buttons on the upper right area of each page. Using these buttons is a quick way to change the text size on the document. The large “A” icon will adjust the text to Arial 11.5. The small “A” icon will adjust the text to Arial 9. The print icon will send the document to your printer
Printing a webpage
Please be aware the printed page is much different to the page you see on your computer screen. Icons, menus and pictures do not appear on the printed document and in some instances, the text size and page setup may need to be manually adjusted before printing. This will depend on the software program you are using and amount of information on the page.
Before printing, you can review the look of the printed page using the “Page Preview” function located under the “File” menu on the top left hand side of the screen. The page setup can also be changed from portrait to landscape from this menu.
The documents available for download on our website are in Microsoft Word or PDF format. If you do not have these programs on your computer, you can download free software that will allow you to view these documents.
