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 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 will be interviewed by a maximum of 3 students with the supervisor in attendance. The students will not be able to give you any advice during this interview. 
  • After your interview the students will discuss your case with the supervisor, who will decide if we can help you.  
  • The students may need to carry out research before help can be given.
  • You will 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 3 students whom will advise you on your employment matter.

Intellectual Property 

Our IP Pro Bono is led by a qualified legal professional and ideally our students studying Intellectual Property. It serves local start-ups, social enterprises and community organisations with respect to their Intellectual Property rights. 

Welfare Benefits

We have a specialist service and partnership with Citizen’s advice Hillingdon. They refer welfare benefit clients to us and a qualified lawyer alongside a maximum of 3 students help advise them.

Domestic Abuse
