  • Landlord and Tenancy Law
  • Employment Law
  • Contractual Disputes
  • The Clinic cannot advise on actions against the University of Leicester, Criminal Law, and Personal Injury cases.
  • The Clinic cannot advise against issues that have already been to court, are going to court, or you have already / are seeking legal help from a practising firm at the time of the interview.
