In his speech, Professor Cillian Ryan, Pro-Vice Chancellor and Head of Nottingham Trent University’s College of Business, Law and Social Science praised the Legal Advice Centre for its role not, only in supporting access to justice, but also in ensuring that Nottingham Law School students receive a transformational legal education.

Laura Pinkney, Head of the Legal Advice Centre, thanked all those who have helped to make the Legal Advice Centre so successful and set out some of her plans for its future development. These include the introduction of new service areas and the introduction of a case management system. The Legal Advice Centre will also play a role in helping to prepare students for stage 2 of the Solicitors Qualifying Examination as well as in the provision of Qualifying Work Experience placements.
