The Law Society of Brunei Darussalam will resume its free legal advice clinic for civil and criminal matters on the last Saturday of each month from 11am-1pm at the ground floor of the Law and Subordinate Courts Building, Batu Satu, Jalan Tutong.

The Law Society will also hold the clinic in Belait District every alternate month starting February from 11.30am-12.30pm at the Magistrate’s Court Building in Kuala Belait.

The clinics were aimed at helping the less-privileged members obtaining legal advice. The criteria for the service are: the person is not represented by any law firm; bring his/her Brunei-issued identity card; proof of current residential address; and proof for income/allowance of less than BND1,500.

Law Society members will conduct the clinic and on a first-come-first-served basis.
