University of Strathclyde Law Clinic

The University of Strathclyde Law Clinic is the only service of its kind in Scotland to provide free legal assistance to people in Glasgow and the surrounding area who are unable to obtain legal assistance through other means.

Although the Law Clinic will usually not take on family disputes where children are involved it can help with a wide variety of problems and disputes, such as housing, consumer law, employment law and Council tax. The legal assistance provided includes legal advice, writing letters, speaking to relevant authorities or opponents, negotiating settlements to disputes, and representation in the courts.

The Law Clinic cannot help if;

* You qualify for legal aid
* You can afford a solicitor
* Another better qualified agency can help you (such as a debt advice agency, Immigration Advisory Service, a Citizens' Advice Bureaux)

Student volunteers supervised by two solicitors and advised by Law School Academics (and in some cases the law firm of McGrigors LLP) work in the Clinic. Recently, an 'outreach' clinic has been set up in North Glasgow.

To arrange an appointment telephone 0141 548 5995 or alternatively, email
