Employment Law Clinic

Employment Law Clinic

The Employment Law Clinic offers free legal advice to members of the community on a wide array of employment law matters. This service is critical, particularly at a time when the introduction of employment fees have caused an alarmingly significant drop in claims. This translates to an increase in non-litigated violations of employment law due to financial barriers.

The employment law clinic is supervised by two Sussex Law School academics – Dr Amir Paz-Fuchs and Dr Ioannis Katsarampous - who teach and research employment law, and is supported by solicitors from the Brighton and London area, with a particular expertise in employment law. These solicitors supervise final year students when meeting clients and writing letters of advice. All students who take part in the employment law clinic have also selected the final year employment law module.

Please note

The Law Clinics are dependent on the services of student advisers from the Law School and therefore run only during term time. We have now closed for the summer recess period and will re-open again in October 2017. We will be taking enquiries again from Monday 2 October 2017. You may want to consider seeking specialist advice from a solicitor regarding your matter or alternatively contact your local Citizens Advice Bureau.
