Work with us
York St John Law Clinic
We provide help and support in family proceedings at York County Court.
We may be able to help if you are going through divorce, separation or child arrangement proceedings and have no legal representation.
We only offer support in family proceedings at York County Court. From September 2020 we aim to offer advice and assistance in other legal matters.
The support we offer
Our students are trained as Community Legal Companions and can help you with:
- Completing court forms and statements
- Accompanying you to court hearings, helping you arrange your paperwork and taking notes
- Signposting you to other services who can help you, including solicitors if you are eligible for legal aid or can afford a small fixed fee.
Our students cannot offer you any legal advice and cannot speak for you in court hearings.
How to access support
Visit our CLOCK (Community Legal Outreach Collaboration Keele) desk on the ground floor at York County Court. We are open Monday to Friday from 10:00am to 4:00pm. You do not need an appointment.
By appointment only, you can meet us at York St John University. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or by submitting an enquiry form to make an appointment.
Working with the CLOCK network
Our Community Legal Companion Scheme is delivered in partnership with York Law School at the University of York. We are part of the CLOCK (Community Legal Outreach Collaboration Keele) network of similar schemes delivered across the country.
