About the Clinic
The concept of pro bono work is a country wide initiative with the intention of providing free and impartial legal advice to those in need. The University of Leicester Pro Bono Group has been successfully providing legal advice free of charge to students and employees of the University for many years. The clinic at University of Leicester is unique as we offer the only legal advice clinic in the country which is completely run by students.
The clinic is committed to providing helpful and accurate advice to our clients and, in reaching this aim, our advisors receive training of the highest standards and only dedicated students are selected for this prestigious role. Although it is ensured that our advisors are competent, all sessions are supervised by legal academics and professors, further enhancing the possibility of solving each of our clients’ problems.
In the event that a client presents a problem which does not fall within one of our areas of competence our advisors will make a referral to a local solicitor specialising in the area of law concerned.
Areas of Advice
The clinic provides legal advice in several areas of law which we believe may prove to be relevant for our potential clients. These areas are:
- Employment Law
- Landlord and Tenant Law
If you think your problem does not fit under one of these headings you can still come and see us- we may still be able to advise you or refer you to people who can.
The clinic cannot advise on actions against the University of Leicester, including the Student’s Union and the Halls of Residence.

It should be noted that sometimes it is not possible to provide a solution to your problem at the initial interview; however a second meeting will be scheduled at a convenient date for you where advice will be issued and explained fully. A letter detailing the advice you received will be sent to you shortly after each meeting to ensure that problems will not be caused due to the information being misunderstood or forgotten.
