Not-for-profit Law has launched its first web application, designed to cut down the time involved for start-up not-for-profits across Australia finding and collating relevant legal information. 

The new app asks start-up groups a series of simple questions, and then produces a bespoke, downloadable report providing only the most relevant and useful information based on the user's answers. The report provides guidance on suitable legal structures, registering as a charity, and tax concessions to consider. 

The application was created by overlaying the significant existing content on the Information Hub (produced with pro bono support from member law firms), with logic maps that enable the generation of bespoke reports.

The application represents a next-generation approach to efficiently providing legal information online, and will save start-up groups hours of time that would usually need to be spent reading and collating information to meet their needs.

The application was produced through a collaboration with Melbourne Law School and Neota Logic. Read more about the project on Justice Connect's website.
