As part of our training programme for the lawyers of the future, The University of Law pro bono programme provides free legal advice to members of the public.
All our advisers are postgraduate students who are training to become solicitors or barristers. They are supervised by experienced lawyers.
Legal Clinics
For all of our clinics a student will first take specific details regarding your enquiry via a telephone interview. Your matter will then be assessed by a supervising solicitor and if deemed suitable will then be allocated to one of our clinics.
When contacting us please provide a brief summary of your problem together with a contact number. As emails and telephone messages are monitored by student volunteers there may be a delay in us responding to your query

Guidance, Legal aid:  exceptional case funding

Sometimes people can get legal aid even though their case is not in the scope of the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act 2012 (LASPO).
This is known as exceptional case funding (ECF). An ECF team within the Legal Aid Agency (LAA) deals with these cases.
To qualify for ECF, you must meet the ECF criteria as set out in LASPO
