Good Law Project's mission is to achieve change through the law. We defend, define and change the law to protect the environment, uphold democracy and ensure no one is left behind. We hold Government and others to account through challenges in the Courts. We are a small and young organisation, but we have been expanding quickly, with increasingly prominent and successful legal cases: we had a primary role in overturning the prorogation of Parliament two years ago and have more recently been shining a bright light on Government's award of pandemic contracts and jobs to their friends and associates. We raise funds directly from the public for our work, and operate on a not for profit basis. We are brave, honest and decisive - those are Good Law Project's values. Our website sets out more about what we do. We are committed to holding Government and other powerful actors to account and to tackling issues of injustice, inequality and discrimination experienced by some of the most marginalised groups in our society. We are now looking for a Legal Manager to ensure that the legal and campaigning objectives of Good Law Project are met by the lawyers we instruct. You will support the Legal Director in developing and managing Good Law Project's litigation portfolio and liaising with the Good Law Project team to build successful campaigns around those legal cases. You will also instruct lawyers on non-contentious matters. You will not need to be a lawyer in practice but you will need to be a qualified and experienced barrister or solicitor, ideally with experience of strategic litigation. This position forms part of the "client" side of the legal team so your work will be informed by, rather than consist of, your experience as a practising lawyer. You will report to our Legal Director and will have some paralegal and administrative support. Download and read the full job description and person specification.
