Law Centres Network
The Law Centres Network is the representative voice of all Law Centres in the UK. Law Centres provide free legal advice and representation both to individuals and community organisations. They target their work so their resources are available to those in greatest need - unemployed, low-paid and disabled people, minority groups and women. The Law Centres Network does not employ lawyers and cannot give any legal advice; however, LCN can refer you to your local Law Centre which can offer legal advice in areas of social and community law.
