Hertfordshire Law Clinic
The University of Hertfordshire can provide free legal advice for Hertfordshire residents thanks to its Law Clinic. The Hertfordshire University Law Clinic works alongside local law firms and solicitors in Hertfordshire to provide free legal advice, whilst also giving law students from the university hands-on experience of legal advice being delivered.
It is worth noting that the Hertfordshire Law Clinic is not regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority. For this reason, you may prefer to consult Citizens Advice or a private solicitors’ service in Hertfordshire for more complex legal issues. The Law Clinic is only open for appointments during university term-time (October to July).
