ABOUT US

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 10 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.
