Free legal advice for and about children and young people - we can help you with any questions about the law

The Scottish Child Law Centre are one of only a few dedicated providers of guidance and information on matters of law concerning children and young people. We provide services throughout the whole of Scotland.

We help children and young people, their families and carers, and professionals working for and with children by providing free expert legal advice and information through our advice line, email and website.

We also provide a wide range of training on the law and children's rights to organisations and individuals across Scotland, and produce a range of publications on various legal issues. We also do visits to schools and young people's groups.

You can contact us for legal advice by phone, email or post. We will return all calls received, but not to international numbers.
