The Free Legal Advice Centre
Free, confidential and high quality legal advice.
The Free Legal Advice Centre at Toynbee Hall has been running for 125 years and is the world’s most continuously running free legal advice centre.
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.
If you would like to make an appointment to see a legal advisor, please complete the Initial Assessment form below.

Please note: we always try our best to ensure that you are seen on time.
Self-help legal packs
With the help of our partners, we have put together a series of videos and guides to help with some of the most common legal issues that people experience. These guides can help you resolve your legal issues quickly, without the need for seeing an advisor.
