The Legal Information Society of Nova Scotia (or LISNS) is a charitable, not-for-profit organization. We have been providing Nova Scotians with easy to understand information and resources about the law for 30 years.


LISNS' staff and volunteers believe easy access to information about the law is fundamental to a fair justice system. Quite simply, it's why and what we do!
