Kent Law Clinic recognised for its excellent contribution to law
Kent Law Clinic has been recognised for its superb contribution to law in the region from the county’s Law Society.
The Law Clinic – which is part of Kent Law School at the University of Kent – provides free legal advice to local residents who could not otherwise afford legal advice and representation. Since 1992, the Law Clinic has helped its clients obtain a total of £5.6 million pounds.
Kent Law Society 200th Anniversary Award for its “significant contribution to the development and practice of law in Kent” was presented to Kent Law Clinic by Kent Law Society as part of its 200th anniversary celebrations. The award was created specifically to recognise work undertaken by Kent Law Clinic solicitors, staff, students and volunteers and was presented to Kent Law Clinic’s Director, Professor John Fitzpatrick, by Sir Brian Leveson, President of Queen's Bench Division.
The main role of Kent Law Clinic is to enhance the education of the University of Kent’s students through direct experience of legal practice, as it gives the students the opportunity to work on live cases under the supervision of Law Clinic solicitors.
