I'm Seamus from Melbourne, co-founder of LawAnswers.com.au. There are complex restrictions on how lawyers can advertise and provide legal advice in each Australian state and territory. That said, as a qualified lawyer, I receive legal questions from friends almost every day. Wanting to help friends to help themselves with their legal questions and reduce strain on the under resourced legal aid system, I started LawAnswers.com.au as an experiment to understand whether a diverse community of Australians (both lawyers and non-lawyers alike) could enable their fellow Australians to better understand popular legal issues. I've also been partially inspired by the Good Judgment Project in the US where unqualified people using Google were able to estimate the probability of intelligence events with the same or better accuracy than trained CIA agents. I warmly share LawAnswers.com.au with you as your forum for Australian legal Q&A!
