Legal Advice Centre

The University of Greenwich, Legal Advice Centre is a free online & face-to-face law clinic which is run by the department of Law and Criminology.

Need free legal advice?

If you have a non-urgent legal issue and need some initial advice, you can request an appointment for one of our free online or face-to-face advice sessions.

About the Law Clinic

The clinic is staffed with two solicitors, and an administrator. Law students are trained as Student Advisers recruited from the 2nd and 3rd year law and master's programmes. The service also recruits volunteer lawyers who supervise some of the advice work.

Major national law firm Womble Bond Dickinson provides supervision of the small business clinic and other employability benefits to the Greenwich law students.

  • The free service is provided at the same standard as any legal practice and is a real help to people who no longer qualify for legal aid following cuts to public funding.

  • I absolutely loved the PIP form filling service; a great help to the community.
