A much needed service
The University of Bristol’s Law Clinic provides pro-bono legal advice, supporting those that most need it to get the justice they deserve - whilst students gain the very best clinical legal education through the provision of a valuable social service that has the power to change lives.
Coronovirus update and the UoB Law Clinic
Due to the restrictions placed on us by the covid-19 situation, we are currently experiencing a backlog with regards to taking on new cases for the Law Clinic. This means that there may be delays of up to 2-3 weeks before we will be able to process new cases.
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.

A functioning justice system means access to both the courts and legal advice for all who need it. Yet, with cuts to legal aid, society’s most vulnerable are being left unprotected. We provide pro-bono legal advice to those that most need it.
Increasingly our students are required to gain solid, real life experiences of law. Our Clinical Legal Studies module embeds the practical application of law into the qualifications of undergraduates choosing it as a third-year option.
How We Work
With a rising demand for our services we only take on cases that are within the competencies of our supervisors and students. This ensures we are well equipped to provide the very best service for those we advise.
Projects and Partners
Our projects see us providing legal advice to some of society's most vulnerable communities - and establishing links with external organisations, often becoming an extension of their team by providing a valuable complementary service.
