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.
