Hackney Community Law Centre, as you would expect, is hip and down with the people. This week sees the launch of its Community Law Shop service, where it is taking legal advice to the streets. In step with one of the latest marketing wheezes, it has styled its new initiative as a ‘pop up’ service – the temporary sites, often used by retailers, allow easy access to clients in high footfall areas and remove the cost of permanent rental. The law shop will pop up between 2pm and 5pm every Monday at Hackney Central Library. Sessions are sponsored by the London Borough of Hackney and Matrix Chambers. HCLC chair Ian Rathbone said: ‘We are taking access to justice to places where people are, so they get their legal issues dealt with.’ Rathbone hopes the service will pop up in other locations too. So, as Shaw Taylor used to say, ‘keep ‘em peeled’.
