Ulster University: Law - Access to Justice

Institution Ulster University
Department School of Law
Telephone 028 9036 6184
Study type Taught


This course is a unique legal education programme which supplements existing legal service provision by focusing on unmet legal need in the fields of employment law, social security law and family law. There is no other comparable course available in Northern Ireland or the island of Ireland.

You will be trained in social security law, employment law, alternative dispute resolution, tribunal representation and family law in preparation for legal drafting and providing advice and advocacy to members of the public in Social Security or Employment Tribunals or to assist clients in family proceedings. This advice and representation will be provided through the Ulster University Law Clinic and/or on placement with the Social Justice Hub or advice sector organisations in semester two and three.

The programme also involves students in the development and management roles of the law clinic and further reflects on wider issues of access to justice, ‘equality of arms’, and dispute resolution.

IMPORTANT: A number of courses will be transitioning to the Belfast Campus. The new campus is on schedule to open its doors and welcome students from September 2021. With the impact of COVID-19 prevailing into 2021, the University is working closely with contractors to mitigate any impact of the pandemic on the opening date.
