The Legal Advice Centre provides members of the community legal advice, free of charge were there is no public funding or they cannot afford to pay. The service and advice is provided by law students under the supervision of practicing solicitors. This is a vital service not only for the community who often have nowhere else to turn, but for our students to learn in a safe and supervised environment giving them confidence and the experience to help them progress into the profession.
