CLM Limerick was established in 2012 and commenced services in 2013 following a comprehensive community consultation process which examined areas of unmet legal need. It is the second community law centre set up by Community Law & Mediation, formerly Northside Community Law & Mediation Centre. A Community Law Centre is a non-profit organisation, which works to reduce and remove barriers to the law, on the basis that all people should be able to access basic legal information and advice, regardless of their income and background.
CLM Limerick provides free legal advice on all areas of law through free legal advice outreach clinics in each of the regeneration areas in Limerick. CLM Limerick also provides legal representation and advocacy, including Court and Tribunal Representation, in areas of law which have been identified as having the greatest need i.e. housing and social welfare law.
The Law Centre also feeds into the other services provided by Community Law & Mediation including free mediation and conflict coaching, community education, law reform work and resources such as ‘Casebase’, a social welfare decision database, and the Irish Community Development Law Journal.
