Justice First Fellowship Trainee Solicitor: Closing date 8 December 2023
Law Centre NI is thrilled to announce an exciting opportunity to join us as a trainee solicitor in 2024 as part of the Legal Education Foundation’s esteemed Justice First Fellowship programme. The successful holder of the post will be sponsored by Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom (UK) LLP through Skadden’s Justice First Skadden Trainee (JUST) Programme, and will take up the position as a JUST Programme Trainee. Through the JUST Programme, which is administered by The Legal Education Foundation and hosted by Law Centre NI, the trainee will be given the opportunity to make connections with Skadden attorneys and professional staff, train alongside Skadden attorneys on relevant areas including immigration and social security, and receive funding for ancillary training support costs. The aim of the JUST Programme is to support the training of the next generation of social welfare lawyers who will become leaders in their field and important advocates for access to justice. It was inspired by the U.S. Skadden Fellowship Program, which has provided two year fellowships to over 800 talented lawyers to pursue social welfare law. The successful holder of the post will also benefit from training and networking opportunities with the other JUST Programme Trainees (former and current) and the wider U.S. Skadden Fellowship network. More information on the JUST Programme is available here.

Working at the Law Centre really does give you an opportunity to make a positive difference to people’s lives. I would like to think that one day there will be no need for organisations like the Law Centre as social justice will prevail… however, in the meantime, I feel privileged to work alongside such tenacious colleagues who refuse to accept things as they are."
