UK City Councils To Offer Legal Advice in Libraries

The city councils of Birmingham and Westminster in the United Kingdom are teaming up with a videoconferencing firm to offer legal advice via webcam in public libraries:

"The plan is now to be in 100 locations within 12 months and 360 locations in 24 months (...) Services will in time be extended to cover non-legal issues such as debt problems."

"Users will access the service through a dedicated computer screen and webcam in a secure location in the library."
