  • Does not provide legal consultation for inquires relating to Criminal Offences and Business Law.
  • May decline to provide consultation for areas of law which are outside the expertise of the attending volunteer lawyer.
Venue
 
Consultations will be held at the National Solidarity Party premises at No. 397, Jalan Besar, #02-01A, Singapore 209007.

Jeannette Chong-Aruldoss who heads NSP's legal clinic made the following appeal on her Facebook:

To my lawyer and non-lawyer friends: Our Free Legal Clinic aims to help needy Singaporeans who are struggling with legal issues. If you feel that you would like to be part of this effort, do send me a FB private message. More lawyers and helpers on board will mean that we can help more Singaporeans get through their difficult times. We will roster your attendances at our Clinic according to your schedule.
