Law Centre NI works to promote social justice in Northern Ireland, using the law as a tool for social change. Since 1977, we have delivered free and independent legal services in social welfare law areas. Our services – legal advice, casework, representation before tribunals and courts – are available to the public and also to advisers working in the advice sector in Northern Ireland.

We work across industrial, immigration and social security tribunals; and before the Social Security Commissioner and the higher courts. We have a particular focus on strategic litigation that brings about broader social change. Through our research and policy advocacy, we work to secure progressive change to law, policy, and practice.

Our services focus on: social security law, employment law, health and social care law (community care), and immigration and asylum law. We offer regular training events in these areas for advisers and other professionals with an interest in social welfare law.
