Public Interest Law Centre (London) – Paralegal
The Public Interest Law Centre are looking to recruit new members to our growing team:
35 hours per week / Full time
The Public Interest Law Centre exists to challenge systemic injustice through legal representation, strategic litigation, research and legal education. We specialise in public law, actions against public authorities and public inquiries, bringing cases to court for individuals and grassroots groups who have been treated unfairly. We hold government and public bodies to account, challenging unlawful policies and practices.
Our solicitors, caseworkers & researchers meet with individuals and community groups to explore how legal action could help them challenge injustice and defend their social and human rights. We work with campaigners to develop strategic litigation for social change. Our current caseload reflects our interest in opposing austerity, the hostile environment, state surveillance & violence against women.
This is an exciting time to be joining the Law Centre. With a number of significant high-profile current cases and some recent major victories for our clients, we look forward to growing the litigation team to support and develop this high-quality, strategic work.
We are seeking a Paralegal with two years’ experience, ideally with knowledge and experience of the legal aid and legal help funding system.
