Immigration University Clinics and regulation: a working case study
AbstractThis paper seeks to introduce readers to the regulation of immigration advice, and how this can work in practice in clinical legal education. The case study of Queen Mary Legal Advice Centre demonstrates that although the statute does not ideally seem to fit with the regulation of university law clinics, it is possible to be compliant. Far from being a negative aspect, regulation in these unique legal advice settings can actually provide a rich ethical learning environment and produce well rounded future lawyers.
