About us

What we do and why

Our School of Law’s highly skilled academics and legal practitioners aim to educate the next generation of lawyers to the highest standard. 


We believe that our students learn best when they see how the law works in real life for real people. As such, we aim for all the services we develop and provide to educate our students, at the same time as helping our clients. We always do this in a sensitive, respectful and responsible way, observing strict rules of ethics and confidentiality, and as set out in our Privacy Notice

Our key concern is to use our expertise and resources to address unmet legal need in our communities and ensure citizens have access to clear information about their rights. For more details about our ethos and purpose, read our School of Law Pro Bono Policy.

The Legal Advice Centre (LAC) is a pro bono project operating as part of Liverpool John Moores University. It is not a regulated law firm, but all LAC solicitor staff and volunteers are subject to the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA)’s Code for Individuals. Find out more.
