About us

East Greenwich Legal Advice Clinic (EGLAC) is a pro bono (free) legal advice and assistance service available to persons resident or based in a South East London postcode who are unable to pay for legal advice privately. We also invite enquiries from charities and community groups.

All of our advisers are volunteers, as are the people who help to facilitate our clinic sessions.

We provide face-to-face advice in our fortnightly clinic appointment sessions, usually on the second and fourth Wednesday of each month, from 7pm to 8.30pm. We can also advise clients remotely by telephone, email and online meetings, depending upon the availability of our volunteers. All appointments are pre-booked; please do not attend our clinic without an appointment.

Face-to-face appointments are held at Christ Church, Trafalgar Road SE10 9EQ. Christ Church is attached to the Forum Community Centre; please enter through the Forum entrance on Trafalgar Road.

The church is on the following bus routes: 129, 177, 180, 188, 286 and 386. The Forum Community Centre has a useful tool on its website which gives directions by public transport from any postcode:

 

How to Make an Appointment

If you would like to access our services please make contact by telephoning 07806 733341, by email here or by filling out the contact form here. Please note that we are closed on Fridays. If we are unable to answer your call, please leave a message (or contact us in one of the other ways set out above) and we will come back to you as soon as possible. If we believe we may be able to assist you, we will book you in for an appointment or arrange a follow-up call with one of our lawyers.

At your appointment, we will discuss your case and provide assistance to deal with your matter. In some cases we can provide some ongoing advice and representation. As most of our volunteers work full-time, we are limited in the amount of follow-on work we can provide. We will discuss this with you on an individual basis.
