Free legal advice

The Free Legal Advice Centre delivers pro bono legal services to members of the public living in and around the Edinburgh area who, for whatever reason, cannot access legal advice elsewhere.

Student advisers, members of staff and qualified solicitors work together to offer advice on legal problems.

The Centre is run by University of Edinburgh law students and University Law School staff and supported by volunteer solicitors. These volunteer solicitors supervise the student advisers and assist them in their research, but the student advisers are responsible for dealing with your case and contacting you.

Book an appointment

The Centre is open and accepting bookings for clinics at the Outreach Building, 9B Holyrood Road, Edinburgh.
