Empowering our local community
London Metropolitan University's School of Law is pleased to offer free initial legal advice to the general public via our online law pro bono clinic, where our law students will work on your case, supervised by an expert qualified solicitor.
The service is available in the three key areas of consumer law, employment law and housing law.
- Have you purchased faulty goods and now the retailer will not refund your money?
- Do you have a problem with discrimination or unfair treatment at work?
- Is your landlord refusing to keep the property where you live in good repair?
If you have any non-urgent problems of this nature, please contact us, and our students will be happy to research your case and offer you free guidance. All advice is confidential and is given in writing, usually within a two-week time frame. If the matter is too complex for the students to deal with, the supervising solicitor will offer advice on gaining professional representation elsewhere.
This service is offered both to empower members of our local community in enforcing their rights, and also to provide vital experience to our excellent students, as they train to become practising lawyers.
To get more information or request free legal support, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
