We are very proud to have been selected as a host for ‘The Legal Education Foundation’ training contract. Please find more information here or apply here.
The Fellowship scheme was launched by TLEF in 2014, to create social welfare lawyers who are equipped to become future leaders of the profession.
Successful applicants must have completed their Legal Practice Course (or equivalent), and be able to demonstrate strong commitment to social justice. Candidates must apply on the Justice First Fellowship website, rather than direct to the host organisation.
As well as completing their solicitor qualification at a leading social justice organisation, Fellows receive additional training in key skills, such as business planning, fund raising, and communications. They will also have responsibility for an individual project, aimed at increasing access to justice.
The Fellowship scheme is now into its fourth year, and the first eight Fellows qualified as solicitors in January 2017.
