Justice First Fellowships 2023/2024
Organisation: Legal Education Foundation
Two-year, fully funded training
Location: Opportunities available across the UK
Deadline: 8 December, 2023
If you are passionate about using the law to deliver social justice, and you are looking for a fantastic opportunity to complete your training and move on to the next stage in a career advancing access to justice, then the Justice First Fellowship is for you.
Our 2023/2024 Fellow recruitment round is now open.
What does the Justice First Fellowship involve?
- Training: A two year fully funded training period in any UK nation, including any mandatory training to be undertaken to qualify in Scotland, Northern Ireland or England & Wales (e.g. a gratuitous offer of a free place at any BPP campus to complete the Professional Skills Course).
- Project: Fellows gain practical experience by working on a project in collaboration with a Host organisation. Projects aim to advance access to justice, provide an opportunity to develop wider non-legal skills essential for a career in social justice and give a Host organisation additional capacity to build upon their work and potential sources of further funding.
- Wider support, development & networking: Through attendance at sessions on project development, professional development and wider skills training (e.g. marketing and fundraising), well-being support as well as access to useful networks. Building important relationships and gaining peer support from other fellows, and being part of our JFF alumni network post-qualification as well.
Applications for this year’s Fellow recruitment close on 8 December 2023. Appointed Fellows will begin their placements in April 2024.
