Enhancing your employability

The Law Clinic

Our law clinic gives students an opportunity to put theory into practice. Students work in our law clinic advising members of the public in conjunction with the Citizens Advice Bureau and CHAS@StVincent's.

Students are trained to interview and advise members of the public on any aspect of law. Working as part of a team, students discuss the case and decide whether the client is in need of legal advice. Under the guidance of the Clinic Director, students then prepare advice for their client.

Students also have the opportunity to receive formal training on immigration law, leading to the award of OISC (Office of the Immigration Services Commissioner) Level 1 and 2 qualifications, through collaboration with CHAS@StVincent's. This gives students the opportunity to be involved in giving immigration advice whilst earning recognised qualifications.

Mooting

Our students have the opportunity to get involved in a range of internal and external mooting competitions.

Mooting complements students' legal education and is a great way to learn how to use the law to create persuasive legal arguments. Students have to analyse problems, research the law, prepare written submissions and present their arguments to a trained lawyer or judge.

The competition imitates the procedures followed in appeal courts, and is a great chance for students to put their skills and knowledge into practice.
