"JFF is bringing something new to the legal world at a time when it can be sometimes bleak, not least through the diversity of the Fellows coming through. I look forward to seeing what the JFF and all of us Fellows will do next."
"I’ve only ever been interested in social welfare and equality law, civil liberties and human rights. The Fellowship scheme provides everything you could possibly want (and more) to forge a career in these areas."
"An important part of the Fellowship programme is that each of us undertakes a project to increase access to justice. My project looked at economic and social rights in a human rights capacity, and sought to develop an evidence base on the impact of the UK and Scottish governments’ policies on vulnerable groups."
"The increased assistance of organisations such as TLEF has meant that firms and third-sector organisations have been able to continue to provide essential services to those most in need. It is exciting to see the potential that schemes such as the JFF bring to the profession. They enable flexibility and movement within an area that was otherwise uncertain."
"During the Fellowship, I have found the workshops, where all the Fellows and host organisations are brought together, very useful in building up skills and giving me new ideas about how to approach my project. It is inspiring to meet the other Fellows. I leave these events feeling that we are making a difference."
"Fellows are expected to undertake a project aimed at increasing access to justice. I have looked into the viability of Legal Expenses Insurance (LEI) as an alternative income stream for funding employment cases at the centre. Although LEI is no panacea, it could have a significant role to play."
