INFORMATION ON ASBESTOS AND PERSONAL INJURY IN NSW. The Legal Profession Amendment (Advertising) Regulation 2005 and the Workers Compensation Amendment (Advertising) Regulation 2005 were gazetted on 15 June 2005 and will commence on 1 July 2005. The Regulations modify existing restrictions on lawyers’ advertising of personal injury and work injury services in NSW and impose new restrictions on advertising through the agency of a person who is not a barrister or solicitor (including arrangements where the barrister or solicitor obtains referrals as a result of the non lawyer’s advertising). The Regulations also introduce new restrictions on non lawyers’ advertising of personal injury and work injury services in NSW. As a result of the above changes, we regret that AussieLegal is not permitted to display any information to NSW residents on these subjects, nor are we permitted to refer NSW residents to solicitors in respect of matters relating to personal injury including asbestos diseases or work injuries. As such, NSW residents are not permitted to use the AussieLegal information or law firm referral service for these matters.
