Law Matters is produced and presented by the Aboriginal Legal Service of WA Ltd in Perth.
Commencing in October 2010, the show is broadcast live fortnightly from the 100.9FM Noongar Radio studios and repeated on the National Indigenous Radio Service (NIRS).
Hosted by ALSWA Public Relations/Media Manager Jodi Hoffmann, Law Matters is an informative show which focuses on the complex legal issues faced by First Nations Peoples.
Law Matters is currently taking a well-earned break, but all programs broadcast between 2010 and 2021 can be heard here (scroll down).
