LIBERTY’S VOLUNTARY SECTOR ADVICE SERVICE Helping you help others ADVICE REQUEST FORM Please post to VAS, Liberty, 21 Tabard Street, London SE1 4LA or fax to 0207 407 5354 Before completing this form, please read the following information carefully. What does the service offer? Liberty will provide advice and information on queries relating to human rights law, we are unable to assist with general legal queries. This service is only available to voluntary sector and not for profit organisations (other services are available for members of the public to access directly) that are advising others. Advice given under this service is not to be considered formal legal advice. We can only advise on matters arising in England & Wales. YourRights Liberty produces an online guide to civil liberties and human rights at www.yourrights.org.uk Please check this site before submitting this form as it may assist you with your query. Will Liberty take the case on? Liberty is a campaigning organisation that only takes on cases that we believe will set important precedent or that will lead to a change in the law. These test cases are designed to force changes in the law, usually by mounting a challenge under European human rights law or the Human Rights Act 1998. We do not do general case work. We receive a great deal of queries but only take up a very small proportion of these as cases. A solicitor is already involved, can Liberty still advise? Liberty is not able to advise individuals who already have a solicitor acting for them, as it would be a breach of the Solicitors Practice Rules. You should advise the individual to raise any questions or concerns about their case with their solicitor.
