Legal Advice Clinics

Students have the opportunity to volunteer alongside solicitors, barristers and community partners to provide members of the public with free legal advice. 

As a School, we work with local community organisations, charities and local advice agencies to help clients who cannot afford legal advice.

We currently work with a number of firms and chambers to provide advice in family, housing and employment law, and we are increasing the areas of law covered according to the needs of the local community.

Students working on the clinics are trained in professional matters such as client confidentiality before they provide support to the legal professionals volunteering in each clinic. Student volunteers report that doing so is a very rewarding experience, as well as being a fantastic opportunity to 'see the law in action'.
