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 email us for more information.

We are not in a position to take on law students. 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.

Fill in the online registration form or get in touch by phoning 01 8873600.

Thank you and looking forward to working with you on promoting access to juctice!
