The legal advice that is given by the volunteer lawyers is based on the information provided by applicants. It is the responsibility of applicants to provide full and accurate information, and volunteer lawyers will not be liable for advice given based on incomplete or inaccurate information. Legal advice does not amount to legal representation. The volunteer lawyers who provide the legal advice make no commitment to represent the applicant in Court, and are not permitted to take on representation of any applicants for a fee.
Clinic Schedule for 2024
All clinics are via Zoom. Each session is for a maximum of 20 minutes, and sessions will be scheduled starting from 7 pm and ending at 9 pm.

Note: If you are applying as a youth, please ensure that the form is completed by one of your parent or your youth worker. You need to be present during the clinic session.
