The service of the University's Legal Advice Centre includes providing preliminary legal advice on whether you have any legal rights or claim and identifying:
- the law that would be applicable
- the recourse or remedy that may be available to you
- the next steps or action you would be able to take.
This is to enable you to consider whether you have a legal case or claim and what you can do to resolve it.
The Legal Advice Centre does not provide a client representation service but you will be given information, where possible, about further steps or actions that can be taken.
We advise on a variety of areas of law, including:
- contractual disputes (such as sale of goods and/or consumer related matters)
- negligence claims (such as claims arising out of an accident, including personal injury)
- housing law (such as tenancy contract disputes)
- business start-up and general business law advice
- employment law related matters.
We do not provide advice on:
- criminal investigations and prosecutions
- divorce law (including: family disputes / children custody / domestic violence)
- finance (including: financial investment, tax-related issues).
We reserve the right not to give advice in any particular case.
