Abstract

The LSBU Legal Advice Clinic is an innovative clinical project where students, under supervision of experienced and legally qualified university-employed staff, deliver immediate face-to-face social welfare law advice to clients from our local community. Since 2011 we have assisted more than 3500 local people and trained over 200 student legal advisors. This paper presents the preliminary findings of a collaborative research project between LSBU clinicians and social scientists experienced in quantitative research methods to investigate whether there is a correlation between a placement in the Clinic and our undergraduate students’ academic attainment on graduation from the LSBU Law programme.
