King's Legal Clinic is a free to use advice-only legal service based in The Dickson Poon School of Law on the Strand Campus at King's College London. Students working under the supervision of qualified lawyers will interview clients, analyse their problem, research the issues and send them a written letter of advice normally within two weeks of their appointment.
The service is completely free to use. All of the clinics operate on an appointment basis only.
In line with the principles of King’s College London to be a civic university in the heart of London and to serve our local community, the Clinic aims to provide assistance to people in the surrounding boroughs of Lambeth, Southwark and Westminster. While the clinics aim to assist as many clients as possible, they try to prioritise individuals who would find it difficult to afford legal advice.
