About this website

Our website

This website is intended as both an introduction to the work of Coventry Law Centre and as an information point in the areas of law in which we specialise. The Law Centre is funded to provide legal advice and information to the people of Coventry and this site is aimed primarily at Coventry's citizens although it is relevant to anyone who lives in England and Wales and is affected by the laws of England and Wales.

The site describes the services that we offer, including the types of advice we give in each area of law, how to get advice and other contact details.

The Director of Coventry Law Centre is responsible for authorship of the content of this site. Our Director can be contacted at Coventry Law Centre, Oakwood House, St Patricks Road, Coventry, CV1 2HL or by email at

Coventry Law Centre is a member of the Law Centres Federation. The Law Society regulates our solicitors. The civil legal aid Internet Quality Mark is awarded to those websites that have complied with the requirements of the quality standard. Details of this standard can be found at the website of the Legal Aid Agency. This Quality Mark was launched in 2002 and this website from Coventry Law Centre was the first law firm or organisation to attain it.
