Representation

If your case is going to be heard by an FTP panel our lawyers can represent you at the hearing or later if there is an appeal.

About us

We are a not-for-profit organisation set up to provide affordable legal assistance through a dedicated team of qualified lawyers and trainee lawyers who specialise in healthcare regulation and who help students defend fitness to practise cases within the university sphere. Our work is part-funded by innovative partnerships with leading UK universities.

We understand the stress that comes with facing allegations made by your university, the uncertainties of not knowing what the outcome will be, whether you will be able to practise in your chosen field… and the combined effect that all of these things can have on your mental health. We also know that legal fees are just an additional worry on top of everything else.

Our fees are kept as low as possible so that we can help as many people as possible. Our work is covered by professional indemnity insurance. We are not required to be regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority.
