The Legal Advice Centre is run by The University of Manchester's School of Social Sciences to give free legal advice to members of the public who are not able to access legal advice elsewhere and to provide real world experience to law students.
Most of our clients are not eligible for legal aid and cannot afford a solicitor. We provide a professional advice service through student-led advice clinics supervised by external specialist lawyers. We combine access to justice for members of the public with hands-on experience of legal issues for our students and the opportunity for them to develop key legal skills.
If you are a qualified solicitor or barrister who works within one of our practice areas and would like to get involved with the Legal Advice Centre please get in touch, we are always looking for new volunteers.
We are grateful for the recognition our work receives and to the people who make it possible.
We introduce our students to the practical application of the law and to using legal knowledge in real life situations.
