Legal Support Students Project

The Legal Support Students Project is a team of student volunteers who work within Leicester County Court assisting individuals who have chosen to represent themselves during their case.


Community Legal Companions accompany litigants into court proceedings to take notes, fill out court forms, and prepare legal bundles.


This project provides both law students with an opportunity to gain real and practical experience with court proceedings.  

Areas of Assistance: 

o    Family Law 

o    Small Claims 

o    Suspended Evictions 


•    Opening Hours 


o    Monday & Thursday: 10.00-16.00

o    Tuesday, Wednesday & Friday: 10.00-14.00 

Due to the pandemic the project has currently been running on a virtual scale using a new system called ‘ CLOCK’ which allows for service users to apply for assistance. To get help go to and click on ‘apply for assistance
