  • It may be helpful to provide those without assistance with some help. However, the difference you find after years of experience is that you know the law and how it will be interpreted. Experience gives you a feel for what is unfair in unfair dismissal and what is a reasonable division of assets in ancillary relief and you can therefore advise as to the likely outcomes. Reciting the test to be applied is sometimes not enough. The closure of some law centres is therefore a loss in terms of training volunteers who work alongside committed experienced professionals.

  • Simon Hughes is a bit late with *his* idea - the Family Advice Scheme at Willesden County Court opened last year to assist those affected by legal aid cuts and is staffed by a solicitor, barristers and...yes, law students!

    We do more than just 'hand hold'.
