Manchester Law School hosted the first of this year’s programme of Business Law Café events on Wednesday, November 6.

The events, ran in partnership with Addleshaw Goddard since 2017, are designed to help Manchester’s entrepreneurs secure access to timely legal guidance about a range of legal issues and enable them to transform their business development.

The evening saw clients bring exciting plans in a number of areas from social enterprise to hospitality for discussion with our law students and Addleshaw Goddard’s lawyer-volunteers.

Professor Andrew Francis, Head of Manchester Law School, said: “It was fantastic to see our students providing this support with Addleshaw Goddard to the city’s enterprises.

“This project is another example of the transformative social change that the Law School delivers in so many different ways. I am very grateful to Addleshaw Goddards’ lawyers for the time they continue to donate to this good cause and I was terrifically proud of the dedication and professionalism shown by our students.” 

The next clinic is scheduled for Tuesday, January 21, and interested enterprises should contact probono@mmu.ac.uk to book a place.
