Law Clinic

We are proud to run three different Clinics for students, staff and the public.

Our services are available for staff and students of UCLan and members of the public who are resident in Lancashire.
Read the Law Clinic's Privacy Notice here.

Free Law Clinic

The Lancashire Law School are very pleased to be able to offer a FREE legal advice service.
The Free Law Clinic is an advice only clinic operated by students currently studying at the Lancashire Law School. Trained student advisers interview clients and then provide written advice under close supervision of qualified solicitors, from both in-house and local firms in Lancashire. The Clinic aims to provide a high standard of service similar to that offered by any Solicitors’ practice.

We rely heavily on volunteers to provide this service. If, for any reason, we cannot help we will endeavour to refer you to another organisation who can assist you.

Please be aware that we do not provide legal representation.

Free Drop-In Clinic

Our second year law students team up with Citizens Advice, Preston, to provide a Drop In Clinic each Wednesday, 11am - 1pm at the Harris Museum, Market Square, Preston, PR1 2PP.

We offer information and guidance only on a range of issues including Housing, Debt, Benefits, Finance and Employment.
It is a FREE walk in service and so no appointment is needed, but please note that appointments are allocated on a first come first served basis.

Information is often provided on the spot or if not, they will signpost to the agency best equipped to help the client.
Legal advice is not given.

Please note the drop-in clinic will be closed during summer, from the end of June until early October.
