University of Suffolk Legal Advice Centre

The University of Suffolk Legal Advice Centre was established in 2021 to provide legal services to the local community.

We are providing advice in two distinct areas; Family Law and advice for Start Ups/ New Businesses.  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. 

Other Organisations Involved

We are hugely grateful to be assisted by our volunteer solicitors, Richard Port MBE of George Green Solicitors, Amanda Timcke of Birketts Solicitors, Mary Cleaver of Oslers Solicitors and Claire Barlow of Christchurch Solicitors.
