Hammersmith and Fulham Law Centre is vibrant law centre located in central Hammersmith. We have a 39-year history of providing an excellent service to the community. Our patron is Lady Hale, president of the Supreme Court, and our Director won the outstanding achievement award at the Legal Aid Lawyer of the Year Awards 2017.
There will be an opportunity to work in each of the three units: Housing, Asylum and Immigration and the Child Poverty Unit which is led by a former Justice First Fellow.
Our housing work aims to reduce homelessness, debt and poverty and to keep people in their homes. Our immigration team predominately work with young asylum seekers, as well as representing vulnerable victims of domestic violence and trafficking.
You will gain advocacy experience through case work, the housing court duty scheme and representation at the First Tier Tribunal. There will be an opportunity to engage with our outreach work in Foodbanks, Southall Black Sisters and West London Welcome and to engage with strategic litigation and campaigning work.
We believe that the client’s voice sits at the heart of the work we do.
