Anglia Ruskin University launches Law Clinic in Peterborough


Following the success of its law clinics in Cambridge and Chelmsford, with over 500 clients having been helped across these services within the last 12 months, the Anglia Law School at Anglia Ruskin University is launching a pop-up monthly Family Law Clinic in Peterborough.  The service will offer a free half-hour of face-to-face advice from a fully qualified and experienced local lawyer, supported by law students.

Anglia Ruskin University launches Law Clinic in Peterborough. The Law Clinic will be able to assist clients with problems surrounding divorce, separation and child arrangements and students will take full notes of the advice given which clients can take away with them as a reminder.  Advice will be given by appointment only. We are extremely grateful to lawyers from Buckles Solicitors who have agreed to support the Law Clinic for its first sessions.  

Full client details are sent to participating lawyers at least 24 hours before their advice session for information and to enable conflict checks to be made.  We hope to be welcoming further local practitioners on to the rota in the future.   

The Peterborough Law Clinic is being launched as a response to demand.  The clinic in Cambridge receives enquiries regularly from people living in the Peterborough area, not all of whom can make the trip to Cambridge for legal advice.  

The Law Clinic is passionate about improving access to justice for all which has led to the decision to extend this free service to Peterborough.We have also been approached by South Lincolnshire Citizens Advice to give their Polish clients support with completing C100 child arrangements application forms and so our trained students will be running this service alongside the Law Clinic, with a Polish-speaking student on the team to provide assistance with translation.

This new Law Clinic will be based on the ARU campus, in the Guild House on Oundle Road.  

Appointments may be booked through our Cambridge administrative office by calling 01223 698498 or clients can email lawclinic@anglia.ac.uk.  

Any local practitioners who would like to find out more about the Law Clinic should feel free to give me a call on 01223 698697 or email me on sarah.calder@anglia.ac.uk.Sarah CalderLaw Clinic Director.
