Central England Law Centre is the largest community law centre in the UK.  Our vision is a fairer, more just society. We believe that legal rights play a key role in this, and our mission is to activate rights in the communities where we work.

As Clinic Lead, you will lead the innovative Strategic Social Justice Clinic (SSJC), a joint initiative with Warwick University. The SSJC is not a case-working clinic, but uses rights-based, creative approaches to tackle systemic issues in the social justice field which are impacting on our local communities.  Law students apply for the opportunity to participate.  More information on past and current work can be found at  Strategic Public Law Clinic (warwick.ac.uk).  The Clinic has been known as the Strategic Public Law Clinic since its inception in 2019, but a name change is under consideration to better reflect and communicate the issues addressed by the Clinic. 

As well as being committed to the vision and values of the Law Centre, we are looking for someone with experience of legal work in the social justice sector, identifying systemic issues nationally and/or locally, and the ability to develop creative ways of contributing to meaningful change using a rights-based approach.    

Our people are at the heart of what we do.  That’s why we are committed to promoting a supportive, inclusive and flexible working environment, in which all staff are provided with opportunities for training and development and staff are included in the development of organisational strategy. We operate policies that support a healthy and inclusive work-life balance, including 37-hour working week, flexible working hours, 28 days holiday (rising by 1 day per year of service to 35 days after 5 years of service) plus 8 statutory days, pension scheme membership and access to an employee assistance programme.  

Salary - £33,565 (Based on 37 hours a week)
