The Employment Law Clinic offers free legal advice to members of the community on a wide array of employment law matters.

The employment law clinic is supervised by two Sussex Law School academics – Prof 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.

We offer advice in the following areas:

  • Bogus self-employment
  • Atypical work (including part time work, fixed term work, agency work, zero hour contracts and gig economy).
  • Illegal deduction of pay (including sick pay, annual leave, etc)
  • Employment discrimination
  • Unfair dismissals
  • Zero-hour contracts
  • Trade union freedoms
