6 April 2017

Volunteers needed!

FLAC is seeking solicitors and barristers fully qualified to practise in Ireland to become volunteer advisors at FLAC clinics in:

  • Ballymun Library
  • Ballymun civic centre
  • Blanchardstown
  • Bray
  • Clondalkin
  • Finglas
  • Finglas Family Law
  • Galway
  • Immigration Law - Dublin City Centre
  • Letterkenny
  • Lucan
  • Maynooth
  • Naas
  • Navan
  • Newbridge
  • Raheny
  • Stillorgan (Daytime)
  • Swords
  • Tallaght
  • Tullamore
  • Wexford
  • Wicklow

 Volunteer advisors provide first-stop legal information and advice to the members of the public in the clinics one evening per month. FLAC advisors don't take on cases for callers, do not act or write letters on callers' behalf, and do not give second opinions. If callers need further assistance after their FLAC session, they may be referred on to another appropriate agency. Support is provided by the local Citizens Information Centre and FLAC, and Free CPD training is available to volunteers.

Please note that unfortunately we currently have no available positions for legal assistants in any of the Dublin clinics, and we are not in a position to take on law students or those who are not yet fully qualified to practice law. If you are a law student and are interested in volunteering, you may be able to get involved with one of the student FLAC societies.
