The BPP Pro Bono Centre offers quality advice to members of the public on various areas of law whilst assisting LPC/BTPC/LLM students develop some of the necessary skills to embark upon their career into the law. Their pro bono clinics are delivered by volunteer law school students with guidance from qualified lawyers. There is a high public demand for free legal advice and the General Law Clinic aims to meet demand by offering a professional service on a range of issues from consumer rights, small claims, enforcing judgements (debt) to road traffic offences. We hope to expand the areas of law we advise on as the Clinic grows.
