Prisoners Legal Service (PLS) is a specialist service of Legal Aid NSW and provides a range of services to prisoners.
Prisoners who need an interview with a solicitor from the PLS should ask the gaol's wing officer, the area manager or welfare to put their name down in the "Legal Aid Book". On the next visit (usually every 2 or 3 weeks) the names in the book will be paged to come for a legal visit. If the gaol is not visited by PLS, prisoners can contact PLS for telephone advice or request an audio visual conference (an AVL).
Prisoners can contact PLS on the Common Auto Dial List (CADL) as a free call - just press 11# (Legal Aid) or 02# (LawAccess) and ask for PLS or Prisoners Legal Service.
Friends and family of prisoners can contact the PLS on Tel: (02) 8688 3888 or Fax: (02) 8688 3895.
