Community Advice Programme
The School of Law and Criminology operates one of the most successful law clinics in the country - Community Advice Programme (CAP).
Our service gives CLS Quality Mark legal advice and assistance in collaboration with the Ealing Equality Council.
We are run by volunteer legal practitioners, both solicitors and barristers, trainees, law lecturers and other legal professionals; as well as students, the majority from the School of Law and Criminology.
Past and present advisers include many former students, including Karon Monaghan, QC and Ricky Singh who was awarded honorary degree for outstanding contribution to the University and local community.
We assist members of the local community with advice and assistance in the following areas of law:
- discrimination and human rights
We also assist Ealing Equality Council with its discrimination casework, including employment matters.
