Legal Services

Both the Grahamstown and Queenstown (QRLC) offices offer free legal services to the indigent, as well as offering a back-up legal service to advice offices throughout the Eastern Cape.

For assistance clients may visit our office, where the reception staff will assist them. They will ascertain the broad outline of the nature of the matter,  its urgency and make the necessary appointments. A screening test, to ensure that the client qualifies for assistance will be undertaken. To qualify for assistance there is a maximum income limit, however other factors will also be taken into consideration when a matter is accepted by the clinic.

In general the clinic handles civil matters, with a limited number of criminal matters.
