Hackney Community Law Centre is a charity employing solicitors and paralegals to provide free and independent legal advice and representation to people living, working or studying in the London Borough of Hackney and neighbouring boroughs.
There are many quality controls at HCLC to ensure that the legal work and representation that we do is in the best interests of our clients and that the quality of advice given is of a high standard. The Supervising Solicitor is regulated by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority, and HCLC is a member of the Law Centres Federation.
