What matters are civil legal services available for?

In principle, civil legal services are available for all civil matters, other than those which are excluded by law. All civil matters are in scope unless specifically excluded. There is a general perception - even among the legal profession - that we only deal with family law cases. While these make up the largest part of our work, they are far from being the only type of case we handle. Never tell any person that comes to the law centre that we “only deal with family law”.

This section deals with some of the matters that are excluded from the scope of civil legal services.  The general rule is that everything is included unless it is excluded.
