Donate now to support LISNS

There are times when everyday people, like you, have a question or two about the law. The Legal Information Society of Nova Scotia (LISNS - pronounced "listens") is here to answer those questions. There are also times when regular people, just like you, can get so lost in the legal system, they cannot see a way out. LISNS is here to help people navigating the legal maze. We help by giving information on the law, in easy to understand terms. Because once you understand the law, it's easier to make decisions on your options. That's why we say with LISNS you "Start Here. Learn More"
