The Asylum Project Success

Public Legal Education

Our TAP Team recently carried out their first PLE session to a community group in the North of Glasgow. This has been a long time in the making, with lots of hard work, research and preparation going in to the session.

Asylum Status

This month we heard news of 3 of our TAP clients being granted status. Two of these cases have run since 2018, with numerous advisors working on them in the 5 years since we took them on. This is a great result for our clients…

Case Work

We recently represented in a Housing Tribunal case where the students Scott and Jasleen were successful in obtaining a wrongful termination order and an award of £2,000 for their client.

Alumni News

Of the seven new Solicitor Advocates appointed by the Law Society this year, three are Clinic Alumni: Paman Singh, Jillian Merchant and Patrick Campbell Corcoran. Congratulations to each of them for this achievement, and thank you for your contribution to the law clinic!

Festive Period

In addition to all the hard work out advisors have been putting in throughout December, between clinic work and exams, we have also managed to fit in some fun! We hosted a Christmas Tree decorating social at the end of November, and rounded off the year with a Christmas Office Party and Quiz!
