Free Legal Advice Service

The City Law School is offering free, confidential and independent legal advice sessions on civil law matters to the local community.  Students will work with qualified lawyers to provide guidance on issues such as:

  • Civil law (including personal injury claims)
  • Employment
  • Landlord and tenant disputes
  • Consumer rights
  • Small claims.

The Service does not include immigration. The matter should not be too complex and no court proceeding should have been issued.
