We help 50,000 people a year through divorce
Every year, thousands of people in the UK face court alone. Without help, they have to represent themselves while they go through a divorce, seek custody of their children, or face eviction from their home. They are forced to navigate a complex legal system alone, often against the professional legal representation of the other party.
The Law Clinic is a partnership between students, academics and solicitors and barristers in practice locally. It has two objects: to provide a public service for local people who need legal advice and representation but cannot afford to pay for it, and to enhance the education of students in the Kent Law School.
The Law Centres Network strives for a just and equal society where everyone’s rights are valued and protected. We do this by supporting a national network of Law Centres that work with some of the most vulnerable and disadvantaged people in society.We are the national voice of Law Centres and their clients, representing them at all levels of government and in various national forums.
