The Law Clinic

The Law Clinic provides free, confidential and reliable legal advice to members of the local community who cannot access legal services elsewhere.

Our student members, working under the supervision of The Law School academic staff and qualified solicitors provide free legal advice to members of the public who might not be able to afford it, while enhancing their skill set with real life situations beyond the theory of the lecture theatre.

We provide advice in a range of areas including housing, immigration, debt, benefits, mediation, employment and consumer rights.

The Law Clinic operates on an appointment-only basis. Before an appointment can be made, one of our student volunteers will speak with you to confirm that your matter is something we are able to advise on and to check that you are eligible to receive free advice from us.

At your appointment you will meet with two student volunteers who will be responsible for handling your case. During the initial meeting the students will take information from you about your problem, but will not provide any advice to you. Advice will be sent to you in writing following the meeting to enable the supervising solicitor to first of all approve it.

If you are unsure about whether your matter is one, which we are able to advise on, please contact us to speak to one of our advisors who can discuss this with you. If your matter is not one with which we are able to advise on, either at the initial appointment stage or subsequently, we will try wherever possible to refer you to an appropriate alternative source of advice.
