Summary of Service

The clinic offers a free, reliable service to those with legal difficulties, providing initial legal advice to those in need and practical legal experience to the University of Law’s students. The service is offered by the University of Law in association with volunteer lawyers from firms in the local area. All students from the University of Law are supervised by qualified University staff and the lawyers involved in the project. At your appointment, you will be interviewed by University students remotely, supervised by a volunteer solicitor. After the interview, the students will prepare a letter of advice based on the information you have given at the appointment. The letter is written under supervision from a qualified solicitor. The letter will include, where appropriate, details of what steps to take next, including referral to other agencies. An advice letter is sent out within two weeks from the date of the appointment.
