UCLan is hosting the free law clinics

The University of Central Lancashire is running free immigration clinics in partnership with a city solicitors.

UCLan Law School and Turner and White Solicitors are working together to offer the drop-in service once a month.

The clinic offers a wide range of services including business visas, human rights applications, and immigration appeals. It runs on the last Wednesday of each month from 2pm to 4pm.

Mark Grundy, who works at the Law School, said, “Members of the public are most welcome to come along with queries, and will be seen on a first come first served basis. We usually see around five or six clients during the two hours and we do have capacity to take more.”

Law student Karen Hindley sat in on the first session in May.

She said: “It’s one thing to read about people you don’t know and their immigration battles in newspapers, but another to be faced with the reality of a family’s suffering and tragedy.

“With immigration cases, the fear and the instability are a constant presence and it is extremely satisfying to help people get a visa and make them feel safe.”
