Program history

WLS NSW now funds Ask LOIS as an ongoing community legal education program.

Special Thanks

In 2019 WLS NSW was selected by UTS Shopfront at the Centre for Social Justice and Inclusion for a graduation project by a student Visual Communication team from the Faculty of Design, Architecture and Building to update and rebrand LOIS.
