Dynamic paralegal required!
The Public Interest Law Centre specialises in public law, actions against public authorities and public inquiries. We act for individuals and campaign groups who have been treated unlawfully by public bodies. We also support communities, activists and social movements to use the law as a tool for social action. We are based in London, with clients citywide as well as in the South East and nationally.
Our solicitors, caseworkers & researchers meet with individuals and community groups to explore how legal action could help them challenge injustice and defend their social and human rights. We work with campaigners to develop strategic litigation for social change. Our current caseload reflects our interest in opposing austerity, the hostile environment, state surveillance & violence against women.
