Important notice: The Free Legal Advice Centre is now closed until Monday 19th August. Should you require urgent assistance during this period, please visit the Law Works website.
Free, confidential and high quality legal advice
Each year we provide thousands of people with free legal assistance on a range of issues within UK law. We are a volunteer-run advice service, and we provide quality assured legal advice to people across London. Our volunteers are a mix of barristers, solicitors, trainee solicitors and law students.
Get in touch with us
To book an appointment, your matter will need to be assessed by the Initial Assessment team. They will conduct an assessment of your matter and determine whether it is related to an area of law the Free Legal Advice Centre can assist you with. If not they will endeavour to find an appropriate agency to help you with your matter.
You can drop in to our advice centre at 28 Commercial Street, 11 6LS, between 10.00am–4.00pm, Monday-Friday (closed between 1:00pm and 2:00pm for lunch) so that we can initially assess your issue.
All returning clients should contact the service by telephone, we will then assess whether or not we are able to assist you further. Please note this is an answer-phone service.
Call us on 020 7392 2978 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
