There is no law centre in the Exeter area and no law firm in Exeter with an immigration legal aid contract so many migrants in the region do not receive the advice they need. The Immigration Law Clinic is a project set up by the University of Exeter Law School with support from the University of Law, Refugee Support Devon and others. The aim is to address this absence of legal advice, while giving law students first-hand experience of immigration law in practice.
The Justice Hub is part of the University of Manchester School of Social Sciences. The hub provides free legal advice services to members of the public, whilst meeting the educational needs of their students.
