The launch of our Editorial and Research Group earlier this year was a resounding success. Our volunteers research and write articles on topical legal issues, which we then publish and share.
We paired students with professionals to make the most of our diverse volunteer base. These teams published sensitive and analytical pieces on the legal issues surrounding the Grenfell fire, on the causes of homelessness, and on the trials of those navigating the benefits system. These articles have been picked up by external news sources such as the Legal Voice, and widely shared on social media. Thank you to Chris, Heba, Jennifer, Sam, Eimear, Paul, Ben and Rosalie for their work.
At 6pm on October 16th, we will meet at our premises, 159 Princess Road, to compile teams for our next round of articles. If you are interested in joining us, please email development[at]gmlaw.org.uk
You can see our previous volunteer articles here:
- Social and Legal Causes of Homelessness by Heba Khalid and Ben Chamberlain. This article was picked up by campaigning organisations such as Greater Manchester Housing Action, Greater Manchester Poverty Action and The Mustard Tree.
- ESA Claims: A Study by Paul Cosier. This article has been particularly popular among Advice workers and social welfare NGOs.
- Were Grenfell Tower residents denied access to justice? By Eimear McCartan and Sam Blewitt. This article was published by LegalVoice and featured in their Top Stories.
