How to access the free legal services

If you have an issue that you would like to confidentially discuss for free, and you believe it falls into one of the outlined areas, all you need to do is complete the online questionnaire.

The information you give is completely confidential and will only be seen by a student adviser and a lawyer. Your enquiry will then be reviewed and the lawyer will send you a letter of advice or contact you via phone to discuss your situation.

If you have a particular time you do or don’t want to be contacted, simply indicate this in your enquiry.
