This role is initially for a fixed-term 12-month contract but has the potential to develop into a full-time and permanent role.


The Public Interest Law Centre (PILC) exists to challenge systemic injustice through legal representation, strategic litigation, research and legal education. We specialise in public law, actions against public authorities and public inquiries, bringing cases to court for individuals and grassroots groups who have been treated unfairly. We hold government and public bodies to account, challenging unlawful policies and practices.


Our solicitors, caseworkers & researchers meet with individuals and community groups to explore how legal action could help them challenge injustice and defend their social and human rights. We work with campaigners to develop strategic litigation for social change. Our current caseload reflects our interest in opposing austerity, thehostile environment, state surveillance & violence against women.


This is an exciting time to be joining the Law Centre. With a number of significant high-profile current cases and some major recent victories for our clients, we look forward to growing the litigation team to support and develop this high-quality strategic work.


We are seeking a dynamic and committed Solicitor with solid public law experience in a range of practice areas. This role is initially for a fixed-term 12-month contract but has the potential to develop into a permanent role.


Applications should be made by completing the application pack on our website, attaching no more than two additional sheets of information. Please do not send CVs as these are not considered.


The completed application form should be returned by email to jobs@pilc.org.uk


The closing date for applications is 9am on Monday 21st June 2021 and we anticipate holding first-stage interviews during the week commencing Monday 28th June and final interviews towards the end of the same week.


This is a re-advertisement of a current vacancy and past applicants for the role are not invited to apply.


We especially encourage applications from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic candidates and/or those with lived experience of the social-justice issues we work on.
