Halsbury Chambers hosts 14th Annual Free Legal Clinic

On the 16th September 2017 Halsbury Chambers will be hosting its 14th Annual Free Legal Clinic. Over the years the firm has hosted the clinic at various venues with guest speakers and other professionals who spoke on pertinent issues.


We have also held the free legal clinic at our Chambers for a more intimate, one on one discussion on legal issues with our attorneys. This year we have decided to take the latter venue due to the fact that persons have requested the “one on one” type of legal clinic.
Although the law provides that “ignorance of the law is no excuse”, the reality is that most people do not know the law.  They do not know what they are responsible for or, indeed, what they are entitled to.  I dare say that most lawyers don’t know everything about the law and, hence, the term, “the practice of law”. In other words, we, as lawyers, continue to learn.
Over the years the attorneys at Halsbury Chambers have given free legal advice on employment, immigration, landlord and tenant, divorce and personal injury matters. Many questions were raised in relation to formation of companies, mortgages and conveyances, wills and trust.   Our feedback on these legal clinics is that many persons have benefitted from the advice given and that is personally satisfying to our attorneys. They have been able to give back in this regard.
So we encourage persons seeking legal advice to come out to our Free Legal Clinic on the 16th September 2017 between the hours of 9am to 3pm. We are confident that there will be an attorney to answer your legal questions or concerns.
