On the 6th November, Brunel Law School celebrated the official launch of the Brunel Pro Bono Legal Advice Centre at Uxbridge.
Established for many years to provide excellent opportunities for students to learn, the Brunel Legal Advice Centre has recently re-focused its remit to become an important local source of legal advice and representation in Employment Law.
Serving two purposes, the Centre – based in the Elliot Jacques Centre – provides practical legal education for students of Brunel Law School, while, at the same time, a much-needed place to access justice for the local community.
Led by Anjali Kemwal, Pro Bono Coordinator for the Legal Advice Centre and Director of Law Lives, students are given the opportunity for supervised practical work experience working with real clients from our local community.
In the coming year, the Centre will also start to serve local start-ups, social enterprises and community organisations with respect to their Intellectual Property rights.
“In the last year alone the Brunel Legal Advice Centre have become a member of Lawworks, advised 50 clients and now receives referrals from ACAS and Citizens Advice Hillingdon.”
Anjali Kemal, Pro Bono Coordinator
“Hopefully we now have a good footing to expand and introduce more access to justice and legal services to the local community!”
Professor Arad Reisberg, Head of Brunel Law School
