Brunel Legal Advice Centre

The Brunel Legal Advice Centre provides a pro bono service to the community helping you improve your access to justice relating mainly to employment law.  

The Brunel Legal Advice Centre (the Centre) has been established to enable students studying at Brunel University London Law School (the University) to obtain practical, legal experience whilst providing a service to the community.    

A general step by step guide on the service we offer our clients:   

  • Initially, you'll be interviewed by a maximum of three students with a supervisor in attendance. The students won't be able to give you any advice during this interview. 
  • After your interview, the students will discuss your case with the supervisor, who'll decide if we can help you.  
  • The students may need to carry out research before help can be given.
  • You'll receive your advice letter within 3-4 weeks of your initial interview*.  
    *We can only advise and represent in exceptional circumstances in Tribunal. We cannot represent you in a court. 

The areas of law we cover are:   

Employment Law 

A qualified lawyer supervises a maximum of three students, who will advise you on your employment matter.
