On 7 December 2017, The University of Exeter officially launched their Immigration Law Clinic.
The immigration clinic, which will open for its first appointments in mid-January 2018, will provide pro bono legal advice on immigration law. Immigration and refugee law is highly complex involving international, European and domestic law, policy and secondary legislation. There are frequent changes in the law which makes it a legal minefield for anyone unless they are a specialist in the area.
Samantha Knights, one of the steering committee behind the new clinic, commented:
‘The immigration clinic will provide a much needed service to a vulnerable community in this area and is a tremendous achievement by the University’s Clinical Programme.’
