Sally Gill joined the School of Law at the University of Greenwich in November 2013 to establish the Legal Advice Centre (LAC) within the School. The LAC allows LLB Law students to volunteer as student advisors under the supervision of a qualified lawyer. LLB Law students may also be able to apply to take the Legal Work Experience placement in their 3rd year as an option.

Sally's practice is employment law although she has some experience of family law and leasehold disputes from her training and early post-qualification experience. Sally brings considerable experience to Greenwich - prior to joining the School of Law, she worked at the University of Law Legal Advice Centre supervising advice work undertaken by postgraduate students and trainee solicitors from the City.

In 2009 Sally set up an employment advice service for clients, allowing students and trainee solicitors to volunteer under supervision. The service - which still exists - also allows legal professionals to give pro bono advice to clients needing advice on unfair dismissal; discrimination and unpaid wages.

Sally was the winner of the 2010 "Wig and Pen Prize" from the City & Westminster Law Society for her work with pro bono clients at the University of the Law and at the Mary Ward Legal Centre where she volunteered for 7 years.

Sally worked with the Law Association of Zambia in 2009 and 2010 in the development of a model for law school pro bono projects and the development of a certification route for paralegals.

Sally is currently working on the expansion of the Legal Advice Centre by offering a 'virtual law clinic' online to clients.
