Legal Services is an in-house legal office. We support and advise Faculties, Schools, Departments and Professional Services within the University and liaise with external bodies and solicitors, barristers and legal firms and the student union, as required.
We provide in-house legal support for the University on a broad range of legal issues from regulatory matters, contracts, equality, commercial and property transaction, international agreements and company matters. It works with the University’s two external legal services provider firms when more specialist services are required.
We also advise on charitable and corporate governance matters, drafting policies and ordinances and regulations, and legal issues arising in student misconduct/disciplinary and fitness to practise matters.
Legal Services act for the University and are not able to advise staff or students on personal matters. We are only able to advise on University matters.
