King’s Legal Clinic offers serves the public by providing free limited legal advice. The clinic provides students with an opportunity to develop their skills, knowledge and mindsets by working on (and reflecting on the experience of working on) real cases for real clients.
Final year undergraduate students can opt for a 30-credit module in Clinical Legal Education. Working in student firms of 4, each firm will work on up to 4 cases with all case work being completed by the end of February. All students receive an induction covering the working methods of the clinic, the context in which free advice providers operate, professional skills training and an introduction to legal processes.
There are 3 assessments; a reflective portfolio of the student’s case work; a viva to assess the student’s understanding of the context in which they have been working: and a simulated case study to provide a greater degree of equivalence across the students assessed work.
