To determine whether you are eligible for a consultation, we will consider the following: the nature of the issue, the area of law concerned, whether there is a conflict of interest and compliance with deadlines.
Please see the Areas covered section for more details.
The aspects of the situation you are dealing with must fall within one of the areas of law we cover.
Please see the Our services section for more details.
Conflicts of interest arise when there is a serious risk that the lawyer’s personal interests or their duties towards another current or former client or a third party interfere with their duties towards you.
For example, we cannot advise two clients involved in the same case. We apply the “first come, first served” principle.
We must also ensure that neither the students nor the supervising lawyers place themselves in a conflict of interest by acting on your behalf. That is why we ask for specific information and perform checks before confirming your appointment at the Clinique juridique.
You are eligible if your case does not require urgent advice or action, if the time frame to obtain our services suits you and if it allows you to meet the deadlines imposed by law or the courts.
The wait time for a first appointment depends on how busy we are and can vary from one area of law to another
