Sheffield Legal Services

To make an appointment, you must freelaw@sheffield.ac.uk send an email and click on the link in the Out of Office message. Whether or not you qualify for legal aid depends on the nature of the legal problem, as only certain types of cases are eligible for legal aid. Eligibility may also depend on your financial and personal circumstances. If you need legal help when the clinic is closed, try the Langsett Advice and Resource Centre`s walk-in session on Wednesdays from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Please note that FreeLaw is only available during the university semester. You can find more information about our opening hours on the absence report under freelaw@sheffield.ac.uk. FreeLaw is committed to providing quality legal advice and customer service. Our advice and research are supervised by qualified lawyers who are also employees of the university. As well as improving the legal skills and employability of our students, FreeLaw provides an invaluable service to the Sheffield community, particularly in light of recent cuts to legal aid to the most vulnerable in our society. FreeLaw is a free legal aid clinic at the University of Sheffield Law School. It is run by law students and a supervising lawyer reviews all advice before it is issued. At Norrie Waite & Slater, we provide legal assistance in the following areas of law. FreeLaw was founded in 2008 and initially offered a referral service for litigants.

Fully restored in 2011 at a cost of £150,000, Bartolome Lodge is now home to FreeLaw and the Miscarriages of Justice Centre. The FreeLaw program includes students who conduct legal research and provide free legal advice to the public and small businesses under the supervision of qualified lawyers through two counseling sessions per week during school hours. Advice focuses on housing, family, employment, consumer rights, contractual matters, personal injury and inheritance matters. FreeLaw is a student-run legal clinic that provides free legal advice to all members of the public, including members of the university, as well as non-profit organizations and small businesses. Our advice is overseen by qualified lawyers who are also faculty members of the Faculty of Law. FreeLaw covers most areas of law, from contractual disputes to housing, employment, etc. FreeLaw can also help refer clients to a company or organization that is better able to handle their specific case when needed. Everyone involved in FreeLaw appreciates the importance of privacy and our use of this information is subject to our clients` instructions, the Data Protection Act 2018 and our duty of confidentiality. The FreeLaw project is funded by contributions from the university, businesses and generous members of the community. A small budget is also provided by the Faculty of Law. In 2012, FreeLaw won the Corporate Award at the Student`s Union Academic Awards in recognition of its work in the local community. Unfortunately, FreeLaw members cannot advise on criminal or immigration matters.

We are unable to provide financial advice or make any claims against the University of Sheffield, its governors, staff or students. Unfortunately, we only have a limited number of slots available. Although the project is led by members of the Faculty of Law, clients and their cases are confidential and separate from the university itself. Only authorized members of the Freelaw team have access to client information. It is important to us that the details surrounding the processing of files remain confidential. From time to time, however, it may be necessary to discuss matters with members of the Faculty of Law to ensure that our advice is accurate. In addition, a portfolio of our work related to our academic studies can be created. In these circumstances, an external auditor from another university may have access to sensitive information. Time slots are only available at the following times during the course period: Wednesday 13:30 to 17:30 and Thursday 14:00 to 16:00. We may also decide not to pursue a case if it does not fall within the clinic`s expertise, if there is a conflict of interest, or if urgent assistance is needed.

Our lawyers not only practice law, but are dedicated to our clients and the betterment of the profession as a whole. Our attorneys have more than 60 years of experience in criminal and civil matters in the state of Alabama and in federal courts. Alternatively, the Citizens Advice Sheffield website lists all the local clinics and counselling centres and contains a lot of useful information. Due to the nature of the service, FreeLaw cannot provide urgent advice to clients.

The expected time frame for consultation is two weeks, although it may take longer during exam and vacation periods. When a person contacts FreeLaw with their problem, their case is handled by a member of the FreeLaw group. This group will be the main contact for correspondence. FreeLaw offers a two-week delay between the acceptance of the file and the consultation. This can be subject to change, but happens very rarely.
