Freedom of Information application
Under the Freedom of Information Act 1992 (WA), you have a right to be given access to documents held by Legal Aid WA, subject to some limitations.
Applications can also be made to amend personal information held by Legal Aid WA, if that information is inaccurate, incomplete, out-of-date or misleading.
You can only use the form below to apply for access to documents held by Legal Aid WA.
You are not required to use this form, but it may help you to make a valid Freedom of Information (FOI) application and provide additional information that may help Legal Aid WA better understand what documents you are seeking and deal with your application more effectively and efficiently.
Before you make an FOI application to Legal Aid WA, you are encouraged to first contact the Legal Aid WA office that was involved in creating the information and ask if you can be given a copy of the documents. Where appropriate, we will try to provide documents without needing you to make a formal FOI request.
If you are not given the documents you want, you can make a formal application under the Freedom of Information Act 1992 (WA).
If you have questions about accessing documents or correcting your personal information, you can contact Legal Aid WA’s Freedom of Information Coordinator by calling our Perth switchboard on (08) 9261 6222.
Information about how to make Freedom of Information requests to other government agencies is available on our webpage about Privacy and Freedom of Information.
