York Law School students support small businesses with legal advice during lockdown

Posted on 18 January 2021

Law students are offering free legal advice to small businesses online to help people during the coronavirus pandemic.

The University of York Law School Small Business Legal Clinic is staffed voluntarily by Masters students, with support from supervising solicitors at the university and law firm Ward Hadaway.

The advice offered through the clinic is aimed at entrepreneurs facing many of the common legal issues experienced by start-up and fledgling organisations such as managing data protection compliance, protecting their intellectual property or establishing corporate structures.
