The Legal Services Commission of South Australia provides a duty solicitor service in the Youth Court of South Australia, to ensure that those appearing in the Court are not disadvantaged or denied access to justice.
The duty solicitor at the Youth Court will also advise and represent young people in custody who have been refused police bail. An appointment should be made to see the duty solicitor well before the court date.
Young people may get ongoing legal assistance if they apply for legal aid directly to the Legal Services Commission [see our website on: Applying for Legal Aid ].
