Published: 16th June 2022 Deadline: 11:59pm on Sunday 10 July 2022 We are looking for a full-time administrative paralegal to support the lawyers in our casework team and our Legal Director. In this important role you will undertake general administrative tasks, which will include legal aid billing support, monitoring and evaluation. This is a permanent post, subject to successfully completing a two month probation period. PLP supports flexible working practices and will consider part-time hours and/or job sharing for the right candidate. The position is line managed by one of our Lead Lawyers. Our casework team specialises in judicial review. We represent clients who are marginalised by poverty, discrimination or other forms of disadvantage, in cases which have wide impact and which further our charitable objectives of promoting access to justice, upholding the rule of law and ensuring fair systems. Recent high-profile cases have involved legal challenges to Home Office removal policy, financial eligibility for Legal Aid, and the EU Settlement Scheme. This role provides an opportunity to gain experience of working in a casework team conducting complex judicial review litigation. It would particularly suit a candidate who wants to develop a career in law. We aim to develop our team members and there are previous holders of the role that have progressed to casework roles within the casework team or have moved on to develop careers in the legal sector. Alternatively, a capable candidate who can perform the job effectively, who shares our values and who wishes to contribute to the success of the team would also be suitable in this role.
