     The additional office for the Legal Advice Scheme for Unrepresented Litigants on Civil Procedures (Procedural Advice Scheme), located at Wanchai Tower, will commence operation tomorrow (March 20).
     The Procedural Advice Scheme provides free legal advice on civil procedural matters to unrepresented litigants who satisfy the income eligibility limit and have not engaged lawyers nor been granted legal aid, and are parties to civil legal proceedings (including commencement of proceedings) in the Lands Tribunal, Family Court, District Court or the courts above. Since its launch in 2013, the Scheme has conducted over 13 000 advice sessions for about 4 200 eligible litigants.
     The additional office at Wanchai Tower can meet increasing service needs and provide more accessible service to litigants involved in District Court and Family Court cases. The current office at High Court Building will continue to provide service to litigants in need. The addresses and opening hours of the two offices are as follows:
Office Address Opening Hours
Wan Chai office Room 437, 4/F, Wanchai Tower, 12 Harbour Road, Wan Chai Monday to Friday: 8.45am to 1pm and 2pm to 6pm

Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays:

     All applications must be submitted in person at the Scheme Office. Also, applicants who are parties or wish to join as parties to civil proceedings must provide relevant and recent court documents.
