Free Legal Advice Clinics

Community Law & Mediation’s free legal advice service is open to everyone. We provide free legal advice in Ireland in the areas of employment, equality, social welfare, housing, family, children’s law and environmental justice. General queries are also welcome.

So if you are having problems accessing your social welfare entitlements, if you are experiencing problems in the workplace, if you are dealing with envionmental harms such as dumping or air pollution, or if you are afraid of losing your home, we are here to help.

You can now book into our free legal advice clinics through our online booking form. To fill out the form, please click whether you want to be directed to our Limerick service or our Head Office (for all other counties) below:

Once you submit the form, we will aim to be in touch within 48 hours with an appointment. We offer phone and in-person appointments.

Alternatively, you can phone us on 01 847 7804 (Dublin) or 061 536 100.

Please note that because of the increased demand for our free legal advice clinics, we are not always in a position to offer repeat appointments on the same issue.

I was feeling isolated and lacking in confidence and if it weren’t for the fact that someone was at the end of a phone line to provide advice and support, I think things would’ve ended very differently
