Free Legal Consultations on Mondays
(http://global.seoul.go.kr/itaewon/
02-2199-8883~5)

Starting on Monday August 22nd, the Itaewon Global Village Center will be offering free legal consultations every Monday morning from 10am to noon. A lawyer from the Korea Legal Aid Corporation (KLAC) will be at the center during these hours each week to give legal advice and answer questions about Korean law. You can have a free consultation about any legal issuincluding those related to labor, family, and criminal law.

The KLAC is public-interest law firm, and their lawyers can also represent those who are in need of a lawyer, but are unable to afford one, free of charge. This means that you can ask for advice at the consultation, and, in some cases, also get free legal representation if needed. Free representation is limited to criminal, domestic violence, and unpaid wage cases. If your case does not qualify for free representation it may still be possible to have a KLAC lawyer represent you at a lower cost than a private lawyer.

To make an appointment to speak with the lawyer you must get in touch with us at the center by 3pm on the Thursday prior to the week you wish to have your consultation. You can find attached a legal consultation request form which you can fill out and send in to us by email at itaewon@sba.seoul.kr or by fax at 02) 795-1154. We will then contact you to confirm your appointment and the lawyer will be able to prepare information related to your inquiry.
