Strathclyde Law Clinic seeks volunteer solicitors
Strathclyde University's Law Clinic is looking for volunteer solicitors to help with its twice monthly drop-in legal advice surgeries.
Established in 2003, the Law Clinic is a student-run organisation which seeks to provide access to justice in Glasgow and the surrounding areas. This includes initial advice clinics (IACs) on the first Wednesday and third Monday of every month, from 6-8pm in its office at 40 George Street, University of Strathclyde. Run by student volunteers, these sessions enable individuals to receive free, on-the-spot, initial legal advice.
To meet ever increasing demand, the clinic is currently looking for both generalist and specialist solicitors who are able to commit to attending one IAC session per month, as a minimum, but to more sessions if willing and able. The subject matter can vary widely, but it is particularly looking for solicitors able advise on employment, housing, simple procedure, contract and consumer matters.
For more details please contact Rebecca Farquhar or Chloe Morgan (student volunteers) at: firstname.lastname@example.org by 30 September 2019.
