The Government of Bermuda, Ministry of Social Development & Sports, and the Department of Youth Sport and Recreation in collaboration with Bar Council recognizes the need for a Free Legal Advice Clinic to be scheduled to assist members of the public with obtaining free legal advice. This collaboration has been going on for many many years. All Barristers & Attorneys listed on the roster have been issued licences to practice law in this jurisdiction for 2020.
COVID-19 FREE LEGAL ADVICE ARRANGEMENT
Due to challenges caused by the Covid-19 Pandemic and social distancing requirements, the Free Legal Advice clinics have been suspended until 8 October 2020. However, several members of the legal fraternity answered the call to provide 15 minutes of Free Legal Advice over the phone to members of the public. Should you wish to speak with a licenced lawyer, please email email@example.com and provide a brief overview on the nature of your legal question along with your name, telephone and email address if you have one. If there are other parties involved, please provide the name along with the name of their lawyer or law firm (for conflict purposes). Alternatively, you may call the Bar Office at 295-4540 to provide these details over the phone. Please allow up to 2 days for a lawyer to be secured and kindly keep to one enquiry so that every member of the Bermuda public in need is serviced. Thank you and stay safe.
