People in Nottinghamshire experiencing issues with their social welfare rights, landlords, tenants, business transactions, employers or former employers are being offered free legal support at a series of drop-in sessions at Nottingham Law School’s Legal Advice Centre.

The sessions are as follows:

Employment advice
Dates of drop-in: 25 June, 9 July, 23 July
Type of issues dealt with: Are you experiencing problems at your workplace? I have been dismissed and I do not think the decision was right.

Commercial issues
Dates of drop-in: 27 June, 11 July, 25 July 
Type of issues dealt with: How do I protect my business? How do I recover my money for invoices raised?

Social Welfare & Landlord / Tenant advice
Dates of drop-in: 4 July, 17 July, 26 July
Type of issues dealt with: Do you need help with your benefits appeal?’ My landlord refused to return my tenancy deposit.

Those seeking advice are asked to bring a utility bill from the last three months and a current formal photo ID, such as a passport or driving licence.

A small number of slots will be available to book in advance for each session. Both bookings and drop-ins will be handled on a first-come, first-served basis. If the team is unable to see someone due to high demand, they will be directed to other sources of help.
