A lawyer is a well trained expert in law and in litigation. Lawyers need to go to university (4 years) and after getting a master’s degree, they are trained for another 3 years. In these 3 years they need to pass the Dutch equivalent to the ‘bar exam’. A lawyer is trained to be able to analyse many facts and data in a short period of time and to advise the client about the best way to resolve a legal issue, if possible by negotiating.
Many lawyers are specialized in specific legal areas.
Lawyers are obliged to treat information confidentially. They are not allowed to reveal this information to anybody, not even to authorities, such as the police.
Lawyers have to comply with a code of conduct to make sure they provide you with the best service possible.
Does Bletchley Park provide subsidized legal aid?
Yes, we do.
In order to receive government subsidized legal aid, certain conditions apply.
First of all, the lawyer must apply for subsidization. Afterwards the so-called ‘Raad voor Rechtsbijstand’ (Legal Aid Board) will decide based upon your income and other financial assets. However, despite the system of subsidization, a small financial contribution shall be asked from you.
You can visit the website of the Raad voor Rechtsbijstand by clicking on the button below.
