Lancaster University Law Clinic
Lancaster University Law Clinic offers free legal advice to members of the public on a variety of legal issues, including family law, education law, consumer disputes, wills and probate, small claims and employment law. The Clinic offers virtual appointments (telephone and skype) and drop-in appointments at The Storey in Lancaster city centre.
The Clinic can be accessed either by making a direct enquiry using our online appointment request form, or via a drop-in appointment at The Storey. We also welcome referrals from local community groups.
Client interviews are held with our student advisors, who take details of the case and then draft a letter of advice. Wherever possible, the letter of advice answers the legal queries that arose during the client interview, provides guidance to the client on their options, and/or signposts the client to further sources of assistance. All advice letters are supervised by a qualified solicitor with expertise in the applicable area of law. The Clinic aims to send an advice letter to clients within 14 – 21 days of the appointment. Please note that no verbal advice will be given on the day of the interview.
