Nova Scotians who don't qualify for legal aid to get free advice at clinics

HALIFAX – Nova Scotians who make too much to qualify for legal aid but not enough to hire a lawyer will soon have more access to free legal advice.

The Legal Information Society of Nova Scotia says it will launch a free summary advice clinic on May 2.

Society executive director Heather de Berdt Romilly says the free clinic has been quietly open for a few months and has been well-received by the public and volunteer lawyers.

She says the society plans to expand the program across the province over the next year.
