Teesside Law Clinic

We are committed to ensuring our students leave Teesside University with the best possible skills for employment in the legal profession. We work in partnership with lawyers, charities and voluntary organisations to provide our students with real opportunities and practical skills in law.

While Teesside Law Clinic prioritises the community need for legal services and the interest of their clients, we also recognise that our students benefit from involvement with cases from real people with real legal concerns.
