The Tasmanian Law Handbook Online provides an overview of Tasmanian and Commonwealth law presented in everyday language. This handbook is intended to give general information about the law in Tasmania. While every effort has been made to ensure accuracy at the time of writing, the law is complex and constantly changing. Moreover, legal exactness is not always possible in a publication of this nature. The Handbook should not be used as a substitute for legal advice.
No responsibility is accepted for any loss, damage or injury, financial or otherwise, suffered by any person acting or relying on information contained in it or omitted from it.
