Have your say

PEOPLE with problems at work now have access to free, confidential employment law advice, thanks to a partnership between a university law school and a law firm.

Many people have already used the clinic run during term-time by law students at the University of Portsmouth, but when students were on holiday the clinic had to close.

Now law firm Verisona has stepped in to run the clinic during holiday periods and ensure it stays open throughout the year.

Anne Stoneham, the clinic’s supervising solicitor from the School of Law, said: ‘The employment law clinic aims to support the legal needs of the community, while also providing a real-life experience for the law students.

‘We are delighted to be working with Verisona to enable the clinic to run all year round.’

Anyone looking for employment law advice can contact the clinic by calling (023) 9284 4080 or emailing
