The Clinic has two objectives: providing a free public service to people in Kent who need legal advice/representation and who cannot afford to pay for it, and enhancing the education of students in Kent Law School through direct legal practice.
In the Clinic, students have a unique opportunity to deepen and broaden their knowledge of law through working on live cases and then critically reflecting on what they have done.
This approach has established the Clinic as a pioneer in clinical legal education. In 2018, the Kent Law Society awarded the Clinic the 200th Anniversary Award for its significant contribution to the development and practice of law within Kent.
If you live in Kent and need legal advice but can't afford to pay, you can seek help from the Clinic. Primarily, we are able to offer advice in the form of a free evening advice session with a legal advisor.
