This training contract is an exciting opportunity for an aspiring solicitor with a passion for free access to justice. We will not allow legal aid cuts to be the death of the social welfare lawyer: we know that to effectively restore legal aid, we must develop and retain legal expertise in social welfare law, and the next generation of lawyers to keep up the fight.
