Our Aim

The Duty Lawyer Service is an organization fully subvented by the Hong Kong SAR Government. It was first established in 1978. It is managed by the Hong Kong Bar Association and the Law Society of Hong Kong through a governing council and is administered by a legally qualified Administrator. The Duty Lawyer Service offers four legal assistance schemes to complement the legal aid services provided by the Legal Aid Department. The four schemes are the Duty Lawyer Scheme, the Legal Advice Scheme, the Tel-Law Scheme and the Convention Against Torture and Non-refoulement Claims Scheme.
