Liverpool Law Clinic

Supported by our law students, Liverpool Law Clinic offers free legal advice to members of the public who are unable to otherwise afford it.

As a member of the Law Clinic family, you will support our solicitors to deliver free legal advice to members of the community. All our solicitors are experts in their field. You will gain hands-on experience of working with clients, which will develop the valuable skills required for your future.

You will develop your ability to research the law that is directly related to a client’s issue and interpret that to advance your client’s case. You will be supported to improve your ability to write clearly and accurately as you provide written advice to your clients. You will be given the opportunity to hone your oral communication skills through contact with clients, solicitors and teammates. You will be given the opportunity to see the law in practice and the value of accurate and timely legal advice to improve the lives of our community.

The Law Clinic provides advice only and some full representation in immigration, family and education law.  We provide hands on opportunities to approximately 350 students a year through our taught programme or volunteer opportunities.  In the academic year 2022-2023 we helped more than 400 clients.  We predominantly provide free legal advice at our Clinic but we also partner with agencies across the area to deliver outreach projects and provide education about legal issues. You can read about some of our successes in a recent University of Liverpool news story.
