Welcome to St James Legal Advice Centre

What we do

We provide free legal advice to those who cannot afford access to justice, and empower clients to understand their legal rights. Our main focus is on solving legal problems such as helping people to claim benefits they are entitled to, housing repairs, and consumer problems. We also provide general advice and assistance with neighbours, unacceptable behaviour at work and so on. We can also provide access to mediation services.

Please note that we can't provide advice on criminal proceedings, and immigration. We also can't advise on debt or consumer credit. We're also unable to do advocacy in court, provide representation on a legal matter, or undertake certain work reserved to the legal profession.

How we operate

We provide free in person services operating from St James’s Church Muswell Hill; Wilton Community Church; and the Salvation Army in Wood Green. All clinics have wheel chair access. Please note that our clinics provide a drop in service and appointments cannot be made.

We operate on a first come, first served basis. You're more likely to be seen if you arrive early. We close our doors to clients 30 minutes before the clinic closing time.

Who we are

We are a team of volunteer legal advisers.
