ARU service continuing to offer people free legal advice despite lockdown
The award-winning Law Clinic at Anglia Ruskin University (ARU) is continuing to offer free legal advice online throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
The service is offering online family law consultations via video conferencing or information via e-mail to people who require specialist professional advice, in partnership with local law firms and assisted by Law students at ARU.
Sarah Calder, Director of the Law Clinic, said:
“Like most services during the current global pandemic, we have had to be creative to ensure we can keep things business as usual as much as we can.
“We’ve already hosted consultations online with several clients and we can also offer confidential and independent advice via e-mail thanks to our partnership with local law firms.
“The need for legal advice does not cease due to a pandemic, and it is important to us that we can continue to serve our communities at what is a difficult time for everyone.”
