The PSO in Honiara runs weekly Legal Clinics for criminal, civil, family and land matters that are tailored to meet the legal assistance needs of people such as detainees, landowners, people with disabilities (PWDs) and victims of gender based violence (GBV) and abuse.
Specialised Legal Clinics are also held fortnightly for people with disabilities (PWDs) and are hosted at the People With Disabilities Solomon Islands (PWDSI) facility at Chinatown. Similar clinics target victims of gender based violence (GBV) and are held as part of Legal Clinics on family issues.
If you contact the PSO seeking legal assistance or wanting to make an application for legal aid and representation, you will most likely be advised to make a booking for a legal clinic where a PSO lawyer or paralegal can offer you initial legal advice and help you fill out your application for legal aid or representation by the PSO.
