BPP Legal Advice Clinic

Location: London, Leeds, Manchester

The BPP Legal Advice Clinic (BLAC) provides free legal advice to members of the public.

Please see the relevant sections below to find out more details about the issues we can help you with.

What BLAC offers you?

If you contact our clinic one of our student case workers will telephone you to take the details of your case and the clinic manager will assess whether it is suitable for our students. If we are able to help you, we will contact you to arrange an appointment. (Please note that our service is limited by expertise, resources and availability, and unfortunately we cannot help everyone who contacts us.)

At your appointment you will meet two student advisers. Following this meeting your appointed advisers will research the particulars of your case, supervised by qualified legal professionals, and then send you a letter setting out their legal opinion, which you will receive in approximately two weeks. (Please note BLAC does not offer a drop in session and no advice is given during the appointment itself.)
