Know the Law chatbot

The UNLC developed the Know the Law chatbot to provide international students with a single platform through which they are able to easily reference Australian legal information.

Law students have been involved in delivering legal information seminars to international students, who often have little knowledge about their rights under Australian law. However, many law students had already encountered some of the issues being discussed, particularly surrounding tenancy.

In response to this, with the help of SSAF funding, the UNLC developed the Know the Law chatbot to provide international students with a single platform to easily reference Australian legal information.

Students can conveniently access the link at any time and immediately find information relating to six key areas:

  • Managing credit and debt
  • Driving in NSW
  • Working in NSW
  • Moving to NSW
  • Police powers and fines in NSW
  • Tenancy in NSW
