Community Legal Services

Community Legal Services provides free legal advice and representation to members of the community, and to Fanshawe College and Western students. We are funded by Legal Aid Ontario, the Law Foundation of Ontario, Fanshawe Student's Council, and Western's University Students Council and Faculty of Law. Over 125 students work in our clinic over the course of the academic year under the supervision of experienced lawyers.

In 2019, 38% of our clients were Western students, and our free services saved these students approximately one million dollars in legal fees. 

Please note: Due to provincial funding cuts our services have decreased. We are no longer offering Wills, POAs, Immigration Services or Criminal Injury Compensation Board (CICB) assistance, and have reduced our current Criminal Law services.

Parking is available in the Weldon Parking Lot beside the Law School.
