The application process for a Training Contract to commence in January 2016 has opened today.

The Training Contract has been arranged with the Justice First Fellowship (part of the Legal Education Foundation) and will focus on the areas of social welfare law. This includes areas such as health and social care, mental health and housing.

The Justice First Fellowship was established in 2014 and aims to support the next generation of students committed to public interest and social justice issues who want to pursue a career in social welfare law.

Applications should be made directly to the Justice First Fellowship. Applications close on the 15th September 2015.

This is a great opportunity for people interested in pursuing a career in social welfare law. It is rare that firms can offer a bespoke training contract with a particular focus on social welfare law so we are pleased to be able to offer this opportunity with the Justice First Fellowship.

The successful applicant will also be required to manage a project over the two years which will further access to justice in the areas of social welfare and for disadvantaged individuals.
