The Legal Advice Centre

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

About the Legal Advice Centre

The 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.


Open now for bookings from 13 October 2020

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.
