The Legal Advice Centre

Our Legal Advice Centre is a student-run service which is supervised by qualified members of academic staff.

The Legal Advice Centre provides free, confidential and independent legal advice to the local community.

This gives Law School students the chance to gain practical experience of the legal profession.

The Centre is staffed by law students under the supervision of qualified staff.  All Student Advisers are final-year law students who have been professionally trained to help with a range of issues including:

  • Consumer issues
  • Criminal/civil disputes
  • Neighbour disputes
  • Housing
  • Employment
  • Family

Need a solicitor?

If you need a solicitor, you can find a local provider on the Law Society Find a Solicitor website. Or you can contact Citizens' Advice for general legal advice.





The centre is staffed by experienced Law School lecturer and lawyer Laura Milner.


The Legal Advice Centre has been nominated five years running for a LawWorks & Attorney General Pro Bono Student Award, and won 'Best Contribution by a Law School' in 2012.

Please note:

we are unable to offer advice on immigration, representation at court/tribunal, debt matters and disputes over children where social services are involved. We are also unable to give advice if you already have a solicitor acting for you.
