Essex Law Clinic is based on University's Colchester Campus. We are open for appointments all year round (with limited service between April and October) on campus or on outreaches (Colchester, Jaywick...)

Free and confidential advice

Members of the public, students and University staff can use the Essex Law Clinic to get free initial advice about a legal problem they are facing. We offer clients an initial consultation to find out their legal position and advise them on what steps they can take to remedy the issues.

We operate by appointment and an initial assessment, which is made by the Clinic Manager, in order to find out whether we can help. Clients are then asked to attend an appointment and bring with them all relevant documentation relating to their legal issue.


All legal advice and assistance is given in the strictest confidence.
