Strathclyde Law Clinic recognised for public service

Strathclyde Law School has recently won the Best Contribution by a Law School award in the LawWorks & Attorney General Student Awards. The award recognises the work of the University’s Law Clinic, which offers free legal advice to the public who do not qualify for legal aid. The Starthclyde Law Clinic is the only service of its kind in Scotland.  Strathclyde is the first Scottish university to win the LawWorks & Attorney General Student Award. .


Competition judges described Strathclyde's contribution to the awards as "a watershed for student pro bono activity in Scotland; long overlooked and now well and truly centre stage."


Professor Donald Nicolson, founder of the Clinic, said: "The Clinic not only provides an invaluable service to the public, by fulfilling unmet need in legal advice. It also gives law students essential, practical experience of the legal profession. The Law Clinic has proved to be a hugely successful venture and this award is a great endorsement of our students' achievements. We look forward to continuing to build on these successes."
