Exeter ECF Clinic
Since the cuts to legal aid that came into effect in 2013, many individuals living locally who previously qualified for legal aid now struggle to access free legal advice. Where people are not automatically entitled to legal aid, they can make an application directly to the Legal Aid Agency for Exceptional Case Funding (ECF).
Trained law students will assist with ECF applications under the supervision of clinic staff.
We would also be happy to discuss creating specific referral pathways or setting up in-house support with organisations or legal practices that would benefit from the additional capacity.
