Free, confidential and high quality legal advice 

Each year we help thousands of people who cannot afford legal help. We are a volunteer-run advice service, and we provide free quality assured legal advice. Our volunteers are a mix of barristers, solicitors, trainee solicitors and law students.

Because our volunteer advisors have different levels of experience and areas of knowledge, we match them with the cases that are most relevant to their expertise. This may mean you are not seen in the order in which you arrive.

New clients

If you are a new client you can drop in to our advice centre between 10.00am-4.00pm Monday-Friday so that we can initially assess your issue.  Alternatively, we can initially assess you by email. Please email  

Once you have been initially assessed we will then, if appropriate, make an evening appointment for you to attend the free legal advice centre.
