Radio Leicester visits the University of Leicester’s Free Legal Advice Clinic

Radio Leicester visited the Free Legal Advice Clinic to find out more about the community work being done by Law School students

The Leicester Law School Free Legal Advice Clinic offers initial advice to people with legal problems in consumer law, employment, family, housing, wills and probate. It has recently expanded and now, alongside the client sessions offered on campus, it also offers sessions at Voluntary Action Leicestershire to be more accessible to the local community.

Student advisers work closely with qualified solicitors to ensure an excellent quality of service. The clinic has had a 100% positive feedback rate from clients since collating feedback this academic year. There are many benefits to the student advisers who will experience for the first time what it is like to advise real clients. The experience boosts their confidence, develops their professional legal skills and provides the opportunity to connect more deeply with the legal material used to advise clients.

The clip was broadcast on Radio Leicester, Ady Dayman and Jo Hayward, 21 January 2019.
