Bristol Mind attending the opening of the University of Bristol Law Clinic

Bristol Mind were recently invited to the opening of the new premises for the University of Bristol Law Clinic.  The Law Clinic provides pro-bono legal advice, supporting those that most need it to get the justice they deserve – whilst students gain the very best clinical legal education through the provision of a valuable social service that has the power to change lives.  The clinic was first set up in 1996 by Professor Donald Nicolson drawing on his own student experiences in the townships in South Africa, and has expanded exponentially in the last three years  having transformed from a student-led voluntary organisation to a practitioner-led Law Clinic.  There are now over 160 students volunteering for the clinic and Bristol Mind is hoping to build a partnership with the clinic to bring the benefits of free legal advice to people who use our services.  Pictured at the launch are Hannah Gough (Outreach Manager), Tom Hore (Director of Bristol Mind), and Bethane Harland (Student Director).
