Mercy Law Resource Centre provides free legal representation to individual clients on homelessness, social housing and related social welfare matters. We provide free legal advice at outreach clinics staffed by MLRC solicitors in accessible locations.   We currently operate a fortnightly clinic in the Carmelite Community Centre, Aungier Street and ad hoc clinics at other locations.  Please contact the office for more information.

Given the limits on our available resources, it is unfortunately not possible to provide clinic appointments or legal assistance to all who request it. We open new files after considering the following: whether the case falls into our priority areas of work and having considered the nature of the claim, strategic importance of the case and its potential impact on our client group, the geographical area, and our own resources and capacity.  See the criteria for taking cases page here for more detail.
