LawWorks Clinics Network Roundtable November 2019 round-up

The November LawWorks Clinics Network roundtable provided the opportunity for clinic coordinators to learn more about Bristol Law Centre’s Legal Advocacy Support Project, which trains students to prepare and represent appellants at first-tier Tribunals.

The Legal Advocacy Support Project provides an invaluable free legal advice and representation service to clients making Employment Support Allowance and Personal Independence Payment appeals.

We were joined by Nathan FitzPatrick, from Bristol Law Centre. Nathan discussed what the team at the Bristol Law Centre has learnt from setting up and running the project, and helpful guidance as to how to manage volunteers. As National Development Officer for the project Nathan provides tailored support to other organisations interested in working with universities to create similar projects.

If you would like to learn more about the project or connect with Nathan, please contact the Clinics Team by email:
