The Bristol Music Advice Service (BMAS) has recently helped two young entrepreneurs set up a new recording studio in the heart of Bristol.

BMAS is run by Law students at UWE Bristol as part of the Pro Bono services offered by the University to local businesses.

BMAS is one of the pro bono business-facing strands which aims to provide free legal advice to people who may not be knowledgeable on the legal side of the music industry. BMAS provides advice and assistance through regular clinics and has recently helped advised recording artists, songwriters and reggae artists in a collaboration with restaurant chain, Turtle Bay.
