Celebration of 50 years of the Free Representation Unit – City University, Nottingham Law School & the Free Representation Unit

November 5, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

The Free Representation Unit, City University Law School and Nottingham Law School Legal Advice Centre, Nottingham Trent University invite you to hear more about FRU’s work and how it connects pro bono legal work with clinical legal education. 

FRU was created by law students almost 50 years ago. The aim was to improve the practical legal education of law students and provide a free representation service in tribunals where legal aid was not available. As we enter our 50th year we would love to explain how our service has developed, how it benefits our clients and volunteers and how we partner with leading academic institutions to provide practical legal experience that complements academic and vocational training. 

The session will be chaired by FRU Chief Executive David Abbott and speakers will include staff, students and volunteers from FRU, City University Law School and Nottingham Law School Legal Advice Centre, Nottingham Trent University. Following the speakers there will be a Q & A session.

Please come and help us to start off the celebrations for 50 years of a remarkable legal institution. The session is open to all and would appeal to anyone with an interest in FRU’s history, legal education, the legal advice sector or those who are building their legal CV.
