Hertfordshire Law Clinic is launching in September 2019.
The clinic will enable Law students to provide free legal advice to members of the public who would otherwise struggle to have access to justice. Successful applicants will be provided with full training and will work under the supervision of qualified lawyers.
The clinic provides advice and assistance on a number of different issues including:
Caseworkers work in pairs to interview new clients, carry out legal research and prepare a letter of advice. Depending on the nature of the case, there may be scope for further work including drafting documents such as divorce petitions.
Students also contact prospective clients by telephone to take instructions in order to decide if the case is suitable for the clinic.
Students will be required to undertake a minimum of 8 hours of mandatory clinic training in September 2019 and will be expected to commit 3 to 4 hours a week during term time.
We welcome applications from all current LLB, LLM and LPC students who are available to take part in the clinic in the 2019/20 academic year.
We will next be recruiting for volunteers in September 2019.
