Clan Childlaw is a unique legal and advocacy service for children and young people. We believe the law needs to work better for children and young people. We act to make this happen through our services:

Representation

We deliver free, confidential legal advice and representation in Edinburgh, the Lothians and Glasgow. We help children and young people up to the age of 18, or 21 if they have been Looked After. Our lawyers are experienced child lawyers who only represent young people. We can meet you at a time and place that is good for you, where you feel comfortable.

Information

We provide free information and guidance about children's rights and the law to family members, carers and adults who work with children or young people in Scotland.

Training

We provide training about children's rights and the law which affects children and young people across Scotland.

Policy

We use what we learn from our legal work to identify how the law could work better for children and young people and we work to make changes to the law.
