PLP is recruiting a lead lawyer
About the Job
Will you join our award-winning and thriving team of public lawyers?
We are looking for an experienced, ambitious solicitor or barrister to litigate public law cases and help manage our small, highly-motivated casework team. This Lead Lawyer role will be based in London. It is an opportunity for a lawyer with existing judicial review or litigation experience – either in legal aid or the corporate sector – to develop their career.
PLP is a growing and lawyer-led access to justice charity, which was founded in 1991. Our vision is a world in which individual rights are respected and public bodies act fairly and lawfully. We act directly for individuals, and are regularly instructed by law firms, lawyers’ groups (such as the Law Centres Network), NGOs and other public interest organisations. Recent high-profile cases have engaged with issues as diverse as Home Office removals policy, funding for advice services and legal aid, and the recent prorogation of Parliament.
PLP funding comes from a range of sources, including legal aid and charitable grants. Our mixed funding model gives the organisation financial security and stability and means that our lawyers are able to work creatively to achievable income targets.
The deadline for applications is 11.59pm on Monday 20 January 2020.
