Summary of Service

Islington Legal Advice Service is a free service that provides legal advice every week on a Thursday evening. It has been running since 1971 and is made possible by the volunteer lawyers and receptionists involved giving their time free of charge. Free legal advice is available every Thursday night from 7pm to 8 pm, although the doors will open before 7pm and clients are invited to come downstairs to the Crypt in order to wait inside. We will do our best to see everyone who attends but it depends on the number of volunteers available. We do not provide casework but can assist with correspondence and sometimes, if appropriate, help to obtain representation. Please note: ILAC reserves the right to decide on whether the matters presented are unsuitable for the service to deal with.
