Queen’s Legal Aid provides a wide range of free legal services, including attending courts and tribunals, to low-income residents of Kingston, Napanee and surrounding areas, and to Queen’s University students.
Experienced lawyers will make sure you get superior legal advice and representation by close supervision of the law student caseworkers at Queen's Legal Aid. Student caseworkers are eager to learn and excited to use their growing legal skills to solve real-life problems and will spend as much time as it takes to do an excellent job for you. Your student caseworker may even remember your case for their entire career, as it is one of their first.
From criminal court to Small Claims Court, and from hearings before the Social Benefits, Social Security and Human Rights Tribunals to the Criminal Injuries Compensation and Landlord and Tenant Boards, Queen's Legal Aid is able to provide excellent representation to eligible clients before a wide variety of decision makers, so you do not have to face legal issues on your own.
Our clients fit within Legal Aid Ontario financial guidelines or are full-time students. They live in Kingston, South Frontenac or South Lennox & Addington County, and have a legal problem within one of our services.
