Our mission

 

 

King’s Legal Clinic (‘the Clinic’) has two key aims; enhancing the education of our students and promoting social justice. Our aims are achieved through five objectives:

  • providing our students with the opportunity to work on live cases thereby developing their skills and understanding of law in context;
  • to develop innovative experiential learning and teaching methods; 
  • develop students professional and ethical awareness and instil a lifelong commitment to access to justice for all;
  • to provide free high-quality legal advice to members of the public, in particular those who cannot afford to pay for legal advice; and
  • engaging in legal activism and research initiatives relating to access to justice and social justice issues.

Climate Justice Pledge

The Clinic recognises that climate change is one of the most significant social justice issues we face. Its impacts will be felt most by the poorest and most vulnerable. As a student law clinic with a commitment to social justice, we commit to raising awareness of the issue of climate change in our teaching, research and activism; and to finding ways to support law students to contribute to the struggle for climate justice.
