|The Waterloo Legal Advice Service is a free service that provides legal advice every week on a Thursday evening. It has been running for over 30 years and is made possible by the solicitors and lawyers involved giving their time free of charge.
Free Legal Advice is available every Thursday night from 6:30 - 8:00 pm. Doors open at 5.30 pm in Winter and 6:00 pm in Summer. Clients are advised not to come before the advertised opening times, as they will be asked to wait outside until the halls are set up. Due to the large demand for this service it can be very busy, so your patience is appreciated. Everyone who arrives before 8:00 pm will be seen.
