Solent Law School is keen to partner with more local client-facing advice organisations interested in working with final-year law students.

9th March 2021

Following the launch of its final-year Professional Practice (Live Client) module, Solent Law School is keen to partner with more local client-facing advice organisations interested in working with law students who, in turn, would be able to support their activities.

“If you advise clients on matters ranging from housing to immigration to debt advice and benefits, then we could release students to you a few hours per week to support your work”, says Solent Law School director, Kevin Rogers.

“This proposal could help you increase your capacity in a sustainable manner, while providing invaluable real-world learning experience for our students” he continues.

The partner organisation would the take the student(s) through their normal training process, ideally in September and, once successfully completed, the student(s) would work with the organisations for at least one morning or afternoon per week, from completion of the training through to the following Easter.

Students would need to have exposure to organisations clients as well as the workings of a busy office environment. Solent Law School would manage the assessment of the students and would look to hold at least two short review meetings with the organisation and the student(s), during the course of their time there.

“If this concept appeals, but the model outline doesn’t quite work for you we can be flexible, so please get in touch to see if there are adaptions we can put in place.”
