Legal Advice Centre

17 Sep 2009

Open for advice on weekdays from 28 September

The University of Manchester Legal Advice Centre has now reopened and is currently taking requests for advice.  Appointments will be available from Monday 28 September through to Friday 27 November, normally across the lunchtime period. The LAC is open from 10am – 4.30pm weekdays.

At the discretion of the Centre Solicitor, the LAC offers free legal advice to members of the public, including university staff and students, on a wide range of matters in the strictest confidence.  Advice is provided by student volunteers from the School of Law under the supervision of qualified legal practitioners and teaching staff. It should be noted that as the lawyers are not based at the Legal Advice Centre, and are also volunteers, an appointments only service is offered.

The advice is provided in the form of a letter, following an initial interview, and the time taken between interview and receipt of the letter will vary, depending on the complexity of the issue, but a two week period is aimed for. If for any reason we are unable to provide advice ourselves, we will endeavour to direct you to an alternative source. Please note that we are not in a position to provide advice on any matter which relates to the university.

You can contact the LAC in any of the following ways:

Write to or call in at:

We look forward to hearing from you and giving our students an opportunity to advise you.
