University of Wolverhampton Legal Advice Centre

The University of Wolverhampton’s Law Advice Centre provides free legal advice for the local community. Especially for those unable to obtain legal assistance through other charitable organisations e.g. the Citizens Advice Bureau.

The Legal Advice Centre is run by law students; they provide free legal advice service to you under the supervision of academic staff, some of whom are qualified solicitors or barristers. Local law firms also support our legal advice centre, which services are 'pro bono', meaning for the public good.

The Legal Advice Centre will be able to provide advice on a variety of areas of law, including:

  • contractual disputes (such as sale of goods and/or consumer related matters),
  • negligence claims (such as claims arising out of an accident, including personal injury),
  • housing law (such as tenancy contract disputes),
  • business start-up and general business law advice,
  • employment law related matters.

Areas of law that we do not provide advice on include:

  • Criminal investigations and prosecutions
  • Debt
  • Divorce law (including: family disputes / children custody / domestic violence)
  • Finance (including: financial investment, tax-related issues).

We reserve the right not to give advice in any particular case.

The Legal Advice Centre does not provide a client representation service but you will be given information, where possible, about further steps or actions that can be taken.

Notes

How we will handle your matter:

In order to give you the best possible service, no advice will be given to you at the first meeting. Students will research your case and check their advice with their academic tutor supervisor and/or an experienced solicitor. You will be invited to a follow up meeting, within 2 to 3 weeks, with your student advisors and then advice will be given to you.
