The Legal Advice Clinic offers free legal advice to the general public. Our Leicester Law School students are trained to give legal advice, closely supervised by qualified solicitors, in the following areas:

  • Contract
  • Consumer law
  • Employment
  • Family
  • Housing
  • Probate and Wills

We also have a Windrush Compensation Project for people affected by the Windrush scandal. We can help you decide whether or not to make a claim to the Compensation Fund. We can also help people to work out which categories of loss they have suffered, and what evidence they can produce to support their claim.

We cannot help you if:

  • Your legal issue relates to a dispute with the University of Leicester.
  • You already have a lawyer.
  • Your query is not within our expertise.
  • Your query is urgent.
