Our volunteer lawyers provide legal advice in a range of areas during our Monday night advice sessions. These sessions run from 6:30pm to 9pm. We can allocate you to a particular area of law if this is what you prefer, and book in clients with legal issues you feel comfortable with. We run a rotating roster with volunteer lawyers providing advice about every six weeks, however, this can be negotiated depending on your availability.
