Due to recent Covid restrictions, wait times for service at the Queen’s Elder Law Clinic are longer than normal.  Thank you for your patience.

QELC assists seniors in Kingston and the surrounding communities who would otherwise have difficulty affording legal counsel. The QELC can only provide legal services to clients who cannot otherwise afford them.

To determine eligibility, the QELC asks prospective clients to complete an application form wherein they are asked to provide personal and financial information. All information provided to the QELC is held in strict confidence and shall not be disclosed to any third parties without your express consent.

Client application forms are available below as a downloadable fillable form that can be submitted by email to qelc@queensu.ca. Or, application forms can be requested by contacting us at the Queen’s Law Clinics. Please call 613-533-2102 for more information or assistance.

QELC Application Form

The Queen’s Elder Law Clinic can only provide pro bono legal services to clients with limited budgets who could not otherwise afford legal services. While we provide a broad range of legal services, there are some matters with which we cannot assist clients. This form will be kept strictly confidential, and will only be seen by the Director of QELC and the student caseworkers. It will be used solely to confirm whether it is appropriate for QELC to provide you with legal services. We reserve the right to request further financial disclosure.

For more information, you can reach the Queen's Elder Law Clinic at 613-533-2102, or email us at qelc@queensu.ca.
