Volunteer Solicitors Needed: University of Strathclyde Law Clinic

The University of Strathclyde Law Clinic is looking for volunteer solicitors to help with our 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.

Our Initial Advice Clinics (IACs) operate on the first Wednesday and third Monday of every month from 6pm – 8pm in its office at 40 George Street, University of Strathclyde. Run by student volunteers, these sessions are an important way for individuals to receive free, on-the-spot, initial legal advice.

There is an ever increasing demand for legally trained professionals to provide advice during these surgeries. We are 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 we are particularly looking for solicitors who are able to provide advice on the following areas of law:

  • Employment
  • Housing
  • Simple Procedure
  • Contract
  • Consumer

For more details on this volunteering opportunity please contact Rebecca Farquhar or Chloe Morgan (student volunteers) at: lawclinic@strath.ac.uk by 30 September 2019.
