Justice First Fellowship – 18 trainee solicitors

About the Job

The Legal Education Foundation’s groundbreaking Justice First Fellowship is entering its sixth year, with its biggest-ever solicitor recruitment round.
Trainee solicitor posts are being offered at 18 social justice organisations, across England, Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland:
Brighton Housing Trust;
Castlemilk Law and Money Advice Centre;
Clan Childlaw;
Community Law Partnership;
Greater Manchester Law Centre;

Applicants must have passed the Legal Practice Course (separate requirements for Northern Ireland and Scotland), and have a proven commitment to social justice. Alongside their solicitor training, fellows are expected to set up and run a project aimed at increasing access to justice, which gives invaluable hands-on experience at an early stage in their career. TLEF also provides fellows with additional training in skills such as fundraising, business planning, and communications.
Deadline for applicants is 16 September; trainees will take up their posts in January 2020.
Candidates must apply via TLEF’s website, and to a single host organisation, only.
