Legal advice for the public

Our aim is to help those members of the community who, due to financial hardship, would not otherwise be able to access such advice. Therefore, our pro bono service provides free legal advice to members of the public across a range of legal issues.

Our students play a crucial role in providing the service by interviewing clients, undertaking research and providing advice. They are supervised by experienced and qualified lawyers at all times and this service is part of their training to become the lawyers of the future.

Please see our Pro Bono Privacy Notice for information on how we use your personal information.

Here are some of the legal services we offer near you:

If we cannot advise you, we refer you to other sources of help. We do not provide casework or representation and cannot assist with complex or urgent cases.
