The Arts and Humanities Research Council has awarded a one-million-pound research grant to the Centre for Socio-legal Studies at the University of Oxford, to undertake a four-year oral history project on the Law Centres movement. This was announced on Friday, 6 November, at the Annual General Meeting of the Law Centres Network.

The project aims to address the lack of comprehensive, historical accounts of radical lawyering in the UK and to reflect on the ways in which Law Centres have been successful in tackling the issues surrounding the UK’s democratic deficit, by working in and alongside disadvantaged communities.
