Freedom of information

 

You have a legal right under the Freedom of Information Act 1991 to make a Freedom of Information request to us if you want to:

  • access documents held by Legal Services Commission of South Australia
  • change personal information that we hold about you

Request for access or amendment

You can get copies of any documents from the Legal Services Commission of South Australia if the document:

  • is not already publicly available (for example in a library or on a public register)
  • is not considered an ‘exempt’ document.

You can seek an amendment to a document, if the document contains information about your own personal affairs that in your opinion is incomplete, incorrect, out of date or misleading.

All requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis in accordance with the Freedom of Information Act 1991.

Making a request

To make a Freedom of Information request, it must be in writing. You can send your request
