Plumstead Community Law Centre
01/10/2015 - 01/11/2015


Plumstead Community Law Centre, 36 Wellington Street, Woolwich, London SE18 6PF

Vacancy start date:           Immediate

Salary/Benefits:                Reasonable travel and lunch expenses

Vacancy details:               Immigration casework at PCLC is currently solely charity-funded and provides a service to those who are unable to obtain immigration legal advice and assistance elsewhere due to a) their case falling outside legal aid scope; and b) insufficient resources to pay a solicitor on a private basis.

The bulk of our workload consists of human rights claims and applications based on EU free movement rights.  Demand for our service vastly outstrips our current workload capacity, and we are therefore looking to expand the service. This volunteer role will include some admin work such as bundling, but we take care to balance this evenly with legal research and drafting of client legal advice letters, representations to the Home Office and legal information leaflets, and to provide you with all the guidance you need in order to gain as much knowledge from each task as possible.

We will assess your performance during the first month to decide whether to offer you an ongoing  placement thereafter. If you are successful we will continue to provide you with consistently interesting and rewarding legal work experience, references as and when needed to further your career. This volunteer post is a great opportunity for those with an interest in this area of the law.

Selection criteria

  • Academic requirement: 2.1 degree - if non-LLB, you must have graduated from your GDL with a Commendation. Ideally you should be a current LPC/BPTC student or recent LPC/BPTC graduate (within the last 2 years) and have some relevant work experience, although a genuine interest in learning about immigration law is more important.
  • Essential key requirement:  ability to demonstrate a genuine interest in immigration- and human rights law. Work experience in these areas is not essential as we ensure that, if you are sufficiently motivated and capable, you learn a lot very quickly by volunteering here.
  • Any other requirements: ability to commit to no less than one full day (10 am to 5 pm) per week, although we are flexible as to which day.

Application procedure

Please email a simple CV and covering letter, addressing the relevant of the above points, to and we will respond within 7 days.
