Coronavirus update and the UoB Law Clinic

Due to the restrictions placed on us by the COVID-19 pandemic, we are currently experiencing a backlog with regards to taking on new cases for the Law Clinic. Therefore, we will not be taking on any new cases before June 2021.

Please note that as the Clinic has moved to remote working, we will be unable to take on cases for individuals who are not able to email us their documents for the foreseeable future. We apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause.

If you have any issues accessing the enquiry form please contact bristol-lawclinic@bristol.ac.uk

Please note before submitting your enquiry

We will not normally take on cases where alternative funding or support is available or where another lawyer or adviser has indicated a less than 50 per cent chance of success. Please also check to see if you have any form of legal expenses insurance that might support your case.

Because of the demand for our services and also from a practical perspective we normally restrict the cases we take on to cases where the client lives within the greater Bristol area.

We do not have the expertise to deal with cases where discrimination of any form is being alleged or cases of immigration.
