Bristol Family Law Advice Scheme
The Bristol Family Law Scheme operates on Thursdays, every fortnight.
A volunteer lawyer meets clients from 10 am to 4pm at the Bristol Civil Justice Centre.
The scheme is administered by the Personal Support Unit (see details below) who let the volunteers know the names of those attending in advance so that any necessary conflict checks can be carried out. The advice is currently limited to private children law proceedings only.
Volunteers are asked to complete a short form setting out the main issues the client wishes to discuss, so we can track the impact of the scheme.
It is clear that those seeking advice are dealing with some serious issues and the assistance of the volunteers is thus valuable and greatly appreciated. If anyone is interested in joining the rota please contact firstname.lastname@example.org We ask for just one day of your time a year to keep the scheme running.
