The environment's legal team since 1992 - protecting the public interest - evening the odds

The EDO is an independent community legal centre specialising in public interest environmental law. We offer professional legal advice and (in a small number of cases) representation, law reform and policy work and community legal education.

The EDO defends the environment in a way that no other organisation can - as the environment's legal team! However, our services are at risk due to Federal government funding cuts. You can help support our work by becoming a member or donating to the EDO. You can read our constitution here.

Christmas closure: the EDO will be closed from 5pm on Thursday 20 December, reopening at 10am on Tuesday 8 January 2019. If you need legal advice during this period, please contact the Legal Services Commission on 1300 366 424


Supported by the Law Foundation of SA, the Department for Environment and Water, membership fees, tax-deductible donations and fundraising. Thanks to our in-kind sponsors: Flinders University, Wavetel, Glashaus Strategic Thinkers, Leconfield and Temple Bruer Wines and B&C Legal Software Solutions.
