Have you got a relative or friend (non-student) who is troubled by a legal problem but scared about the expense involved?

If you think you might be assisted by one-off advice then supervised trainee barristers and solicitors at The City Law School may be able to help you…

We’re running day clinics on Tuesdays and Wednesdays in all area of civil law (excluding employment and immigration law), provided no court proceedings have been issued. These are conducted by post graduate law students who interview the clients, carry out legal research and provide an one-off written advice (supervised by qualified staff). Sessions will run until roughly the end of April.

In addition on Thursday evenings (6.30-8.00pm) qualified lawyers are available to consult on a range of issues:

– landlord and tenant
– small claims
– consumer
– personal injury

They may be assisted by post graduate law students to carry out the legal research and provide an one-off written advice (supervised by solicitors).

There are 6 sessions in 2014: Jan 23rd, Feb 11th, March 20th, May 1st, May 29th and June 5th.

Sounds great, how do I book a slot?

If you would like an appointment please telephone 0207 404 5787 x 353/391 between 9.00-5.00pm Mondays-Fridays. All interviews take place at The City Law School, 2-10 Princeton Street, WC1R 4BH, near Chancery Lane tube station.

Remember the legal advice clinic only offers one off advice and no court representation.
