In this course students will learn about clinical legal education, access to justice and the importance of pro bono within the legal system.

This is an engaging course, requiring participation in order to create an exciting learning environment for students. Students will be able to develop their professional legal skills such as client interviewing skills and other professional practice topics such as advocacy, professional legal ethics and drafting, for example.

Students will engage in StreetLaw activities, attend court visits and have an active role in simulations. We aim to provide students with a unique appreciation of access to justice issues, insights into how legal systems globally, support clients who are unable to pay for legal advice.

You will be assessed practically and through coursework. The final element of assessment is a 3,000-word essay. This course is accredited and worth 15 Queen Mary credits. This usually translates to 4 US credits and 7.5 ECTS.

The sessions run 4 days a week from 24 July – 11 August. Teaching usually runs from 10am – 3pm.
