Legal Advice Clinic

The Legal Advice Clinic is a free public drop-in advice service staffed by LSBU law students working under the supervision of practising solicitors.

We provide

  • Basic information on any topic.
  • Generalist advice in any social welfare law matters (except immigration).
  • Specialist legal advice in family, housing and employment at Thursday evening sessions (accessible via an initial assessment at our daytime drop-in)
  • Answers to questions like What benefits am I entitled to? Do I have grounds for divorce? Your landlord won’t return my deposit? Does my employer have to give me a reference?

Drop-in Opening times

Tuesdays 10am to 12 noon

Wednesdays 10am to 12 noon and 3pm to 5pm.

During term-time only: 28 Jan – 7 May 2014 (closed for Easter 8 April – 23 April).

 Our drop-in appointments last up to 45 minutes.

If your enquiry is too complicated for us to deal with in that time, we will try to direct you to an appropriate local service.

Our drop-in sessions can get busy and we cannot guarantee that we will be able to see everybody. Please arrive early to avoid disappointment.
