Summary of Service

The Durham LawWorks Pro Bono Society clinic is made up of student volunteers and operates to provide legal advice to individuals and small businesses in Durham. We have qualified solicitors helping us to give advice in the areas of commercial litigation, IP law and employment law. Students will work under their supervision with clients, sending them a written letter of advice and assisting with the administrative needs of either party. All advice is given via Skype to the client at the CAB facility in Durham, alongside one of our volunteers. This means that the solicitor can be operating from anywhere in the country, increasing the convenience and efficiency of our appointments.
