About Us

The Law Clinic offers appointments in Lent and Michaelmas terms.

Unfortunately, the Law Clinic is currently closed due to the Summer break. We anticipate that we will be accepting appointments again in Autumn.

Taking on cases

Enquiries usually come into the Clinic as a direct enquiry via our online appointment request form. We also receive referrals from Lancaster and Morecambe Citizen’s Advice Bureau and local community groups.

Appointments are with student advisors who work in teams of two and then research the problem and area of law. Please note that no verbal advice will be provided during the appointment. The Law Clinic aims to send a letter of advice within 21 days of the appointment date. Advice letters are supervised by a qualified solicitor or barrister.

Virtual Appointments

Lancaster University Law Clinic is pleased to be able to offer virtual appointments by telephone and Microsoft Teams to extend our service. Please note that all appointments in 2021 are currently taking place online. If you would like to make a virtual appointment with one of our student advisors, please complete the online form on our ‘contact us’ page, or email lawclinic@lancaster.ac.uk.

Can we help?

If you are unsure whether or not we will be able to assist, we recommend that you email lawclinic@lancaster.ac.uk, and one of our team will get back to you. Please note that the Law Clinic will only advise on areas of law where we have a qualified practitioner with the appropriate expertise to supervise the advice letter, and we may not be able to assist on all occasions.
