During an average academic year, we advise over 100 clients and approximately 150 law students can be involved in the Clinic at any one time. Some students are assessed on their work in the Clinic as part of their course. The Windrush Justice Clinic is an award-winning project run across a network of organisations. The WJC at the University of Westminster advises and assists members of the public with their compensation claims. Students work on cases under supervision.
