New program includes participation in clinic for social security and employment law

The University of Ulster in Northern Ireland will be offering a new LL.M. in Clinical Legal Education beginning in September 2012 at its Jordanstown campus near Belfast.

According to the university, the new program is designed to "supplement the range of legal service providers by focusing on, and meeting, unmet legal need in the fields of employment law and social security law, whilst giving students the opportunity to develop legal advice and advocacy skills and engaging their interest in the provision of legal services more generally."

Students on the program will participate in the Ulster Law Clinic, which provides free social security and employment law advice and representation to members of the public with cases before social security or industrial tribunals.

The program will be offered full-time over one year or part-time over two years.

For more information, please visit the Ulster Clinical Legal Education LL.M. program website.
