General information

Service offered: 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. We now operate a Virtual Law Clinic replacing our face-to-face service for the time being. Once appropriate and in line with government advice, we will reopen our in-person clinic to run alongside our virtual appointments. Student advisers, members of staff, and qualified volunteer solicitors work together to offer advice on legal problems. 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. We can provide advice and assistance on the following: Company & Commercial, Contract, Disputes, Employment, Family, Property, Intellectual Property, Landlord and Tenant, Wills and Inheritance, and Personal Injury. We cannot provide advice or assistance on the following: Criminal Law, Immigration Law, or Representation or advice in tribunals, hearings, or the vast majority of court cases.

Target group: The general public, University staff, and students.

Area served: Edinburgh, the Lothians and Fife for in-person appointments and Scotland-wide for virtual.

How to contact: Email freelegaladvice@ed.ac.uk to arrange an appointment or phone 0800 073 0150 to leave a voicemail (as we are operating remotely in line with government restrictions, this number is currently infrequently checked).
