Liverpool Law Clinic

Our students contribute to all the work carried out in the clinic and have worked on high profile cases undertaken by local law firms and worked alongside other organisations.

The Liverpool Law Clinic has received national recognition for the work undertaken by its students and staff. For example our students won the LawWorks and Attorney General Student Pro Bono Award for best contribution by a team of students for their work on our Hillsborough project, supporting the work of a local law firm representing the families of the 96 people who died in the disaster.

Inside Law: Our students. Our Law Clinic. Your impact

PhD student Tilly Clough, who began her Liverpool journey as an undergraduate student, talks to Lucy Yeatman, Director and In-house Solicitor, about what the Law Clinic has meant to her throughout her study and beyond.

Training opportunities

The Law Clinic will be running core training for all students who want to take part in projects in weeks 1 and 2 of semester one.

Students who have completed core training will be able to apply for projects and any new projects developed during the year will be advertised to students who have completed core training. These extra-curricular projects provide vital services to the local community and provide access to justice for those who are unable to afford a lawyer.

Students who participate in extra-curricular projects develop transferrable employability skills and learn how to use law in practice.
