The University of Strathclyde Law Clinic has given advice to over 100 clients at their initial advice clinics (IAC’s) in the last 6 months.
IAC’s run on the first Wednesday and third Monday of every month, and are staffed by student advisor’s from the law clinic, and volunteer solicitors from across Glasgow. Clients can attend IAC’s without an appointment to get immediate advice on a wide range of legal problems and are sometimes referred on as clients to the law clinic, or to other local advice agencies.
Many of the volunteer solicitors are law clinic alumni and have been attending IAC’s for several years. However, the law clinic has been happy to welcome new volunteers this year, and is grateful to all the solicitors who give up their time and expertise to attend and offer advice.
Law Clinic alumnus and trainee solicitor at Hughes Dowdall, Jacky Wall, said: “The University of Strathclyde Law Clinic IAC’s are an immensely rewarding activity to be involved in. They are a tremendous opportunity for both students and practitioners to provide a much needed free legal service to those in need.”
