The Legal Education Foundation’s Justice First Fellowship 2020 recruitment round opened on 17 August and will run until 14 September, with 19 posts offered nationwide.
Four of the training contracts are based at organisations specialising in child law, building on the fellowship’s existing commitment to increase the availability of children’s rights expertise across the UK. The fellowships at Disability Law Service and Deighton Pierce Glynn will focus on disability law; the DPG post is reserved for a disabled candidate and will include secondment to Inclusion London.
