We provide a range of corporate legal services to the administrative and academic divisions of the University of Tasmania. The services most in demand include:
The Legal Office does not provide personal legal advice to University staff or students.
If a request for legal services requires either resources or expertise beyond those that we are able to provide, we may, in consultation with the Director Governance & Legal, refer the matter to the University's external solicitors, the Australian Government Solicitor.
The University has made available for staff two digitised versions of a standard contract for the provision of professional services. These contracts consist of a long-form and a short form, and are designed to be used in non-research related services such as short-term teaching services or the provision of expert advice. Either version may be used unaltered without recourse to the Legal Office. However, if you require clarification of any aspect of the contracts or wish to amend them in any way to suit your circumstances, please contact one of our lawyers. The short-form version is accompanied by guidelines which may also provide limited use for the long-form version.
