Ealing Law Centre is an award winning and highly respected law centre, providing specialist legal advice and representation to our local community. We have built a strong reputation for innovation in our services. In addition to legal aid contracts in housing and immigration, we run projects at the local Foodbank, provide a Crisis Navigator service at Brentford County Court and a holistic service to clients who have overlapping housing and welfare benefits issues, thanks to grant funding from City Bridge Trust. We have been awarded a grant through the Legal Education Foundation and are looking to appoint a Justice First Fellow /Trainee Solicitor.
We are social justice lawyers fighting for the rights of our clients, through casework and by making sure their voices are heard in policy development. We are keen to make sure that we provide access to justice for our clients beyond the confines of the current legal aid contract.
This post is open to an LPC graduate and will suit a person who is committed to social welfare law. The role would be suitable for a person who has a particular interest in the addressing poverty, suffering and distress amongst the most marginalised members of our society.
The candidate will need excellent communication skills and have the ability to thrive as part of a small team. The role will involve training with our Housing, Immigration and Welfare Rights teams. We are soon be moving to be based in a local community library which will be an exciting new phase in the Law Centres’ development which will see us based right at the heart of the community.
