This is training on how to set up an ECF clinic for law firms, chambers and universities.

The legal aid Exceptional Case Funding (ECF) scheme is intended to be a human rights ‘safety net’ to avoid breaches of people’s rights, ensuring access to legal aid even when it would not normally be available. ECF clinics help people access ECF to get funded legal representation for vital cases. Such funding can also ‘free-up’ valuable resources in the pro bono sector and promote innovative partnerships. PLP’s toolkit is a guide to setting up an ECF clinic. It looks at clinical models, opportunities issues and analysis with detailed case studies and views from clinical practitioners and their partners.

It is based on our previously published toolkit, which you can download and access here.

Presented by Katy Watts and Dr Emma Marshall.

This training will run from 11:00 – 12:30.
