Free legal advice at grassroots
The Keetmanshoop event proved to be very successfull with dozens of people queueing to see one of the lawyers available on that day. Similar Free Legal Advice Days will be held in Oshakati on 12 September, Windhoek on 16 January 2015, Tsumeb on 20 February, Swakopmund on 17 April and Gobabis on 12 June next year. These events coincide with Law Society circle meeting where all legal practitioners of a town or regions meet to discuss issues of law administration.
The Free Legal Advice Day forms part of the Law Society’s objectives for 2014 to make legal services more accessible to those members of the public who struggle to afford a lawyer. In a statment issued after the first Free Legal Advice Day, the Law Society Council and Directorate expressed their gratitude to the Office of the Ombudsman and the members of the Law Society for their participation and support in making this project a success.
