Community Legal Outreach Collaboration Keele (CLOCK)
Founded 10 years ago, CLOCK began as a research project, listening to 'Voices of Experience'; a group of women from a domestic violence refuge, who shared their fears and proposals for how to support women going to court alone following the significant withdrawal of legal aid under LASPO, the Legal Aid Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act, 2012. CLOCK has been Highly Commended by the Attorney-General National Access to Justice Award, 2016, and the Green Gown Awards for 'Benefitting Society', 2019.
The Community Legal Companion role has been endorsed by the President of the Family Court and has been cascaded to 12 University Law Schools to operate in 8 court centres; Stoke, Brighton, Canterbury, Wolverhampton, Leicester, Oxford, Liverpool and York.
Please note, if you opt for the blended learning option on this course, you will not be eligible to participate in CLOCK.
At 24-years-old, Victoria became one of the youngest qualified solicitors her firm had ever seen - "I find myself doing something different every day at work, whether that be going to court, taking a witness statement or drafting correspondence to clients and medical experts. I work on a whole variety of cases and building up relationships with medical experts is an important part of my job. The skills I gained at Keele, including all the networking I did, have been useful as I grow in my career. Keele played such a big role in getting me to where I am today and I’m so proud to be Keele alumni."
"During my time at Keele, I have been given many opportunities to do more and get more involved. For example, I have been involved in the Client Interviewing competition and been a member of the Law and Bar Society. Keele gives you opportunities to help build a career. My plans for the future are to go to the Bar and become a Barrister, and I can honestly say that the support at Keele has put me in good place to achieve this."
