South Wales firm Hugh James claims to be the first in the country to launch free campus-based legal advice clinics for students and college staff in two South Wales colleges. But business has not been brisk at the first clinic that started at the beginning of the academic year, at Merthyr Tydfil College, which has 5,000 students. Ceri Breeze, a partner in Hugh James's Merthyr office, said the two Wednesday afternoon sessions held so far had produced only one enquiry. "We anticipated demand to be weak at the beginning - it takes time for word to get around," she said. A second clinic, at the University of Glamorgan at Pontypridd, where 15,000 students are enrolled, will start this week and will be run from Hugh James's Talbot Green office.
