Summary of Service

Birmingham FLAG is operated by students at the University of Birmingham, working together with qualified legal professionals from FLAG’s contributor firms Mills & Reeve, No5 Barrister’s Chambers and Shakespeare Martineau. Professional volunteers closely supervise students at the clinic. On receipt of your enquiry, a member of the FLAG team will contact you by telephone to obtain further details of your case. If we agree to take your case on, you will be invited to an interview at the University or one of our contributor firms’ offices. The interview is conducted by the students with the Professional Volunteer present and taking an observational but active role when necessary. Following the meeting the students will produce a letter of advice under the Professional Volunteers’ supervision, which will detail the appropriate next steps for you to take. Please note that if your enquiry is urgent you should seek legal advice elsewhere as we are unable to act in urgent matters.
