Prison-University Partnership Project

This exciting new project involves a collaboration between the Law School, the Legal Advice Clinic, and the Criminology department, to develop a partnership with HMP Leicester.

The project is looking to recruit 2 or 3 student members to this university-led project. You will have the opportunity to apply for security clearance and, if successful, we expect to be able to offer you an opportunity to attend the prison at least once to take part in an educational session on an aspect of the law, run by the project, for a group of prisoners.


Longer term, we plan to develop a range of activities in partnership with the prison. As the project is in its initial stages, we cannot guarantee the extent to which student input will be possible this year. Involvement in this project may not therefore require a large time commitment.
