Free legal clinic

Cambridge’s Citizens’ Advice Bureau is starting up a free legal clinic.

Citizens’ Advice Bureau (CAB) Cambridge is starting up a free legal clinic in town, run by local lawyers who are giving their time to provide the service.

The clinics will be held on Wednesdays from 9-10am at the CAB premises on Alpha Street, starting next week. It will be open to everyone on an appointment basis. These can be booked through Citizens’ Advice Bureau, either by contacting them on 07 827 0442, or in person at 62 Alpha Street. When making an appointment people will be asked for a brief outline of their issue, so the “duty” lawyer can be briefed beforehand.

Although the Clinic is a free service, anyone wanting the lawyer to act on their behalf may be subject to charges for any work involved.

CAB chair, Richard Vaughan, said it was an exciting new venture for the CAB. “We would like to thank Cooney Law, Vosper Law, Lewis Lawyers and Brook Law (Hamilton) for their very active support in establishing and providing staff to run the clinic. I am sure that our community will welcome this new development.”
