PAC also provide a specialist information and advice service to prisoners and protestors and aim to set up a network of International Police Action Lawyers (IPAL) across the world.
The IPAL network will share and discuss issues on police brutality and injustice towards prisoners and protestors so that we can all work together to find ways to support and challenge the authorities.
PAC organise advice clinics in the evenings and weekends. The purpose of the clinics is to provide informal advice to those who wish to seek further information about the police complaints procedure or a potential civil claim against the police or other state body.
