FLAC announces Pop-up LGBTQ Legal Advice Clinic for Pride Week

FLAC CEO Eilis Barry

As part of the 2018 Pride celebrations, FLAC will host a Free Legal Advice Clinic specifically for the LGBTQ community on Monday 25th June.

FLAC CEO Eilis Barry said:

“FLAC is delighted to host a free legal advice clinic in a safe, positive, non-judgmental and inclusive space for the LBGTQ community in Outhouse on Capel Street on Monday 25th June. The clinic will operate on a drop-in basis and will run from 7-9pm.

“FLAC is a human rights organisation that promotes equal access to justice for all and our vision is one where all people have access to legal protections regardless of their sexuality or gender.

“In this clinic, you can ask a question on any area of law and receive basic legal advice from a volunteer lawyer. We are asking for people visiting to bring any documentation or correspondence which might help the lawyer to assist you. The volunteer lawyer will help establish whether there is a legal aspect to your problem, explain what options are open to you and direct you to where you may obtain further assistance where appropriate.

We are committed to offering both a welcoming and confidential environment for members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community when seeking free legal advice.”

FLAC (Free Legal Advice Centres) is a human rights organisation which exists to promote equal access to justice for all. As an NGO, FLAC relies on a combination of statutory funding, contributions from the legal professions and donations from individuals and grant-making foundations to support its work.

FLAC offers basic legal information through its telephone information line (1890 350 250) and free legal advice through a network of volunteer evening advice centres – more at www.flac.ie/help/.
