Initially, most law students work as caseworkers within the General Legal Advice Service. This involves providing advice to clients under the supervision of practitioners. CLC recruits volunteers for the General Advice Service in March and November. This is followed by an in-depth training course that each volunteer must complete.
Students may also volunteer to work for one of CLC’s specialist services, for example the employment, resource management, youth advocacy, or prison information services. Volunteering with any of CLC’s services can provide students with valuable practical experience and an opportunity to apply their theoretical knowledge.
A legal Telephone Information Service is also staffed by volunteers – preferably by those who have completed their degree and are awaiting employment, or are final year students.
If you are interested in volunteering with us, please contact the Volunteer Co-ordinator – firstname.lastname@example.org
