The Community Legal Outreach Collaboration Keele is an innovative initiative launched by Keele University Law School. By working with a number of partner organisations, CLOCK enables Keele Law students to provide vital help and support to disadvantaged communities through legal research, policy work and community legal education.
The initiative is divided into three mutually supportive projects:
A collaborative commitment to develop community legal education projects to share in schools, colleges, university and wider communities on a variety of social and legal issues.
A collaborative commitment to train and supervise Community Legal Companions who will support access to justice and legal service needs in housing, welfare, intimate/social violence, asylum and immigration.
A collaborative set of frameworks supporting social and legal policy research to monitor and critically analyse legal issues in the local community.
