‘Special permission’ granted for law clinic’s family court base

11th March 2024

Law Gazette

A law clinic will now have a base at the family court after being granted ‘special permission’.

Teesside University Law Clinic will offer emotional support and procedural advice to people who are not represented in private family law cases.

The initiative, believed to be the only one in the north of England, was given special permission by the court to attend and work with litigants in person at Middlesbrough Family Court.

Final year LLB law students will be supported by law clinic staff, who are all trained legal professionals. The students will offer procedural advice on the hearings, explain the court process and the next stages as well as emotional support.
