Legal Consultation

About PPIS Legal Consultation

PPIS Legal Consultation will offer complimentary legal aid and referrals, as well as legal awareness and education to women of all races and religions. Our aim is to build a resilient community, where women are empowered by their legal rights and have equal access to legal opinion. There will be two core services under PPIS Legal Consultation i.e. Legal Consult and Legal Awareness & Education.

1. Legal Consult

Volunteer lawyers will be on-hand to offer advice, solutions and referrals. Women needing legal consultancy may schedule an appointment with a volunteer lawyer. Each session is capped at 20 minutes and held fortnightly on Wednesdays, from 7.30 pm to 9.00 pm. All consultations are via appointment only and appointments are to be made via the online Registration Form. 

Frequently Asked Questions (Legal Consult)

Based on your preferred mode and convenience, the consultation will be done physically or virtually via Zoom. All consultations are via appointment only. Please book an appointment in advance. 

2. How long is the consultation?

Each legal consult/session will be limited to 20 minutes.

3. What does the 20-minutes consultation include?

During your 20-min session, you may ask for legal advice on a specific incident, question, contract, or a specific section of a document. The session is meant for preliminary advice to make sense of your legal situation and does not include document drafting or document review.

As each session is limited to 20 minutes and we need to ensure each session is conducive for both client and lawyer, we are allowing a maximum of two pax per session. However, do inform us beforehand if this is not possible, so we can look into making the necessary arrangements.
