Islington Law Centre is delighted that our Migrant and Refugee Children’s Legal Unit (MiCLU) has been chosen as a host agency for the Justice First Fellowship programme.  This means that we are able to offer a training contract within the team, with the opportunity to qualify as a solicitor, and to specialise in work with children and young people.  This post is funded by the Legal Education Foundation and by BBC Children in Need.

MiCLU is a specialist policy and legal hub committed to promoting and protecting the rights of refugee and migrant children and young people. We achieve this using a unique combination of direct legal representation, strategic litigation, policy and influencing work, advocacy and legal education.

The programme aims to develop a new cohort of social welfare lawyers who have a strong commitment to access to justice, and the successful candidate will have the opportunity to work on their own project, as well as on our well established programme of activities.

Further details and the online application are available via the Legal Education Foundation website, here:-  Applications are through the Justice First Fellowship: The deadline for applications is 18 September 2017.
