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.

The panel will discuss different approaches to clinical models in university, pro bono and NGO settings, compliance issues and research opportunities.
