Bloomsbury Law Clinic

 

Bloomsbury Law Clinic is controlled and managed by Bloomsbury Institute.

The mission and purpose of the Clinic is two-fold:

  • Social justice: to provide free legal advice to people who are not eligible for legal aid and cannot afford to pay
  • Student learning: to provide law students with clinical experience, and non-law students with the opportunity to develop their transferrable skills

We will provide legal advice on Housing Law for residential tenants, covering tenancy disputes, disrepair and homelessness.

We are engaging with external practising solicitors (on a pro bono basis) to supervise students when interviewing clients and providing written legal advice.

The Clinic was established in October 2021 to enable students to be trained prior to opening to the general public in January 2022. An Enquiry Form will be published on this website on 10 January 2022 to enable clients to request an appointment. Initially, we will provide online and telephone appointments.

The formal opening of the Clinic will take place at 7 Bedford Square on Friday 14 January 2022 at 2pm. Lord Neuberger has accepted an invitation to open the Clinic.
