Host Organisation: Liverpool Law Clinic 2022

Cameron Dunleavy

Briefly explain your most recent educational background and any work (paid or voluntary) you were doing before you began your Fellowship?

I completed a politics degree at undergraduate level before going on to undertake the GDL course and then finally completed the LPC/LLM in 2021-22.

I have worked as a paralegal for over five years during this time. Prior to that, I volunteered as a caseworker at Asylum Link Merseyside, which kickstarted my desire to become a solicitor.

Why did you want to apply for a Justice First Fellowship?

The Fellowship is a opportunity to learn from experienced social justice solicitors and campaigners. Therefore, the training provided will give me the best foundation from which I can hopefully make a difference to those who are being denied justice. I want to become a solicitor to help people. The Fellowship will provide me with the tools necessary to achieve this goal.

Complete the following sentence: ‘Outside of my legal interests, I enjoy…’

supporting Everton Football Club and Lancashire County Cricket Club, reading books on Irish history and cooking Italian food. I am involved in ACORN, which is a community union, as a member-defence co-ordinator so I also enjoy being a nuisance to landlords.
