CWJ is offering a unique opportunity for a Justice First Fellow to work in a specialist field, working on novel, strategic litigation challenging violence against women and girls. Our cases are of national significance and are often featured in mainstream as well as specialist media.
The post would suit an enthusiastic feminist with a keen interest in challenging discrimination in the justice system and gaining experience in actions against public authorities.
We particularly welcome applications from Black, Asian and minoritised individuals, and/or people with disabilities
The post-holder will have seats with three of the CWJ solicitors. Two seats will involve contentious litigation, including civil claims against public authorities, public law and some criminal appeal work. The third will be a non-contentious seat, advising frontline services on legal remedies for victims of domestic and/or sexual violence they assist. All seats will include opportunities to learn and undertake the full range of practice skills standards. We also expect to be able to offer the opportunity for the trainee to spend some time with a partnership organisation to allow them to experience another area of law and the work of another organisation.
