Each year we seek Host organisations that are:

  • committed to, and expert in, different categories of social welfare law
  • innovative, effective and thinking creatively about its future sustainability
  • involved, in different ways, in work that is of national significance
  • registered as training establishments with the Solicitor’s Regulatory Authority

Additionally, our choice of hosts will take account of:

  • geographical location, we wish to cover a wide range of UK locations;
  • any preferences of the Fellowship co-funders.

We also ask:

  • what funding sources your organisation has and a copy of your latest Report and Accounts
  • whether it already has any trainee solicitors or paralegals
  • what specialisms it has
  • why TLEF should support your organisation in preference to others
  • how you will incorporate the Fellow’s project requirement into the training contract.
