The Family Legal Clinic (FLC) is a pro bono legal service founded in August 2014 by a group of young and enthusiastic professionals, including two lawyers and a journalist, in collaboration with Hope for Women. After 3 years of successful service, on 20th September 2017 Family Legal Clinic was registered as an NGO. It is the first initiative of its kind in the Maldives and focuses on providing pro bono legal consultations and awareness in the areas of family law and prevention of domestic violence law.
Our aim is to increase access to justice by increasing people's access to a lawyer in the areas of family and domestic violence law.
Currently, there are 17 lawyers registered with FLC. Our lawyers, who give pro bono time to the consultations, are trained by the Society of Health Education (SHE) on prevention of ‘gender based violence’ and communication with survivors.
