Legal Advice Centre
The University of Suffolk Legal Advice Centre provides free legal advice to our local community, whilst at the same time providing our law students with an opportunity to gain practical experience. We are very grateful to the Vice Chancellor, Professor Helen Langton, for the continued support in this project.
We provide legal advice in two areas of law — family law and new businesses and start-ups. To ensure we are able to reach all of our clients, it is possible to request either a meeting in person or an appointment online. We provide an initial one-hour consultation and then written advice will be provided to you within seven-ten working days by our students, who are supervised by qualified solicitors. We are hugely grateful to be assisted by our volunteer solicitors, Richard Port MBE of George Green Solicitors, Amanda Timcke and Andrew Tubb of Birketts Solicitors and Paul Whittingham.

“Just to say, thank you very much for your time and advice.”
“Thank you so much for the letter of advice. It must represent a huge amount of work and I’m very grateful to you all for offering such a service... Thank you again for your help and I wanted to pass on how I felt in the meeting, everyone was very understanding and kind. I’m sure the human caring aspect of what you are training to do will serve you well alongside all the knowledge you are gaining in your training.”
