Run by the University of Westminster Law School, the Legal Advice Clinic is just around the corner from Oxford Circus underground station.

We offer one-hour appointments where our law student advisors will listen to your legal problem, understand your situation and provide bespoke advice that’s right for you. Whether it’s a housing, family, employment or immigration legal problem, we’re here to help.

With the most diverse student body in the country, our friendly and approachable law student advisors come from all walks of life which means they can relate to a whole range of problems and situations.

Our free service aims to give you the tools, tips and practical solutions to help you move forward as well as ensure you feel empowered and supported to take the next step.

Book your appointment today and let us help you solve your legal problems.

"An important part of Westminster Law School, the University of Westminster Legal Advice Clinic has been operating for over 15 years."

It has offered over that time free legal advice in many different areas of law and assisted hundreds of people with their legal problems. Our students have won awards for their volunteering. Recently the Clinic was awarded funding to expand our services and we look forward to this new era of greater capacity.


Our student advisors and administrators come from all walks of life, brought together by an interest in law. Our professional supervisors work in law firms and barrister’s chambers across London and have combined over 100 years’ legal experience. The University employs two members of staff to oversee the Legal Advice Clinic:

Anna Steiner is the Legal Advice Clinic Director. Anna  qualified as a solicitor in 1999  practising in housing and education law. Anna  has worked  as a supervising solicitor in university legal advice clinics since 2005 and  joined the University of Westminster Law School in  2018 .

Karen is our Student Experience Coordinator, and ensures that all our Student Advisors and any other students involved with the Clinic are fully trained, updated and supported during their time with the Clinic.

Karen has a background in student and mental health support services, is a passionate human rights campaigner and is studying to become a solicitor.
