Justice First Fellowships: applications open
The Legal Education Foundation (LEF) has opened the application process for the 2016 Justice First Fellowships. The deadline for applications is 20 September 2016, with fellows to take up their posts in January 2017.
Eleven fully funded trainee solicitor posts at social welfare law providers are being offered. There are 20 current fellows and the first intake of trainees, who joined the scheme in 2014, are due to qualify next year. According to Matthew Smerdon, LEF’s chief executive: ‘The calibre of our existing fellows is exceptional. They are already making an impact, and we expect the 2016 intake to be equally brilliant.’
