Kent Law School students to quiz the Solicitor General

Solicitor General Robert Buckland QC MP will take part in a ‘hot seat’ question and answer session as part of a visit to the University’s Law Clinic.

Students of Kent Law School will have the opportunity to ask the Solicitor General questions about pro bono work (work for which there is no payment), Public Legal Education, their careers and his role as a Law Officer.

He will also tour the new £5m Kent Law Clinic building and meet with staff and some of the lawyers from the community who volunteer there, including Perveez Sethna of Parry Law, Canterbury; barrister Lavinia Glover of Becket Chambers, Canterbury; solicitor James Muir-Little of Furley Page Solicitors, Canterbury; and barrister Richard Honey of Francis Taylor Building, Inner Temple.

Students who gain practical experience of the law in the clinic will present work from cases or projects they are involved in.

The Solicitor General will briefly talk about his role in Pro Bono, before taking up the hot seat for students’ questions.  The visit will take place on Friday 16 February.
