Students give free legal information for employment claims

Categories: Salford Business School

Being faced with a case and having no legal representation can be a daunting prospect. 

Students from the University of Salford and BPP Law School are running free information sessions to community members facing employment tribunal claims.  

Students from The University of Salford have delivered sessions on the tribunal process and what to expect after a hearing receiving great feedback from Employment Judge David Hoey, and the public body ACAS, who provide advice on all aspects of workplace relations and employment law.

Christine Peacock, Lecturer in Law at The University of Salford said: “I am so proud to see how my team of students has developed through this project. They have delivered presentations with professionalism and answered questions from the public with confidence.”

The information sessions are supported by the Manchester Employment Tribunal who are actively promoting the service to its users.
