I lead a Business Law Clinic which provides free legal advice and assistance to businesses in the North East of England.
Visit our blog!
The students who work in our clinic run a blog. It’s called WeTakeCareOfBusiness. The blog gives you lots of information about our clinic, and the clients we have worked for in the past. It also includes lots of hints & tips about legal issues that might affect SMEs and social enterprises.
My colleague Victoria Gleason and I were shortlisted for the 2016 ALT/Routledge Teaching Law with Technology Prize for our work on the blog. Read more about the project and the prize here.

The provision of free legal advice to businesses is a controversial area, particularly in an era of austerity. I have written about the rise of business law clinics in the UK for The Law Teacher and the Journal of Legal Education. And I’ve argued for the re-conceptualisation of social justice. For a list of my recent work on this area, check out this page.
