NS Legal Aid (NSLA) offers legal help to all Nova Scotians who need it. Though we give priority to people in financial need, we have many legal services available including:
- Legal information
- Legal advice
- Representation by a lawyer
NS Legal Aid has offices in every region of the Province. All of our offices provide information, advice and representation (to qualified applicants). Contact us to make an appointment.
We also offer community walk-in clinics to help people understand the legal process, answer their questions and help them get legal aid. Please view our Calendar to find the locations and programs offered.
