On April 10th, UWE Bristol hosted their inaugural Student Conference which provided students from across all years of study and disciplines the opportunity to present their research to their peers and UWE staff.

LPC students Chloe Frost, Didem Kekilli, Laura Ramos Montanez and Mun Too were among some of the many students that presented their work at the conference.

Their eye catching poster, which they had designed themselves, showcased the pro bono legal advice they have been providing to a local community interest group which is acquiring use of the former Eastville Library in Bristol through a Community Asset Transfer from the local council.

The students, supervised by Samantha Cornock and Diana Johnson, have been able to draw upon skills and knowledge they have acquired on the LPC to provide advice to the community interest group.

The students commented that taking part in the pro bono project has strengthened their CV’s and impressed potential employers at interviews.
