The Administrative Justice Council is looking for a part-time intern to assist them with research for a new project on access to social welfare and health advice provision. This pilot project will explore the health / justice nexus of early advice provision in four settings. The aim is to continue impact and engagement by building a network, beyond academia, to enable justice / health advice hubs.
The successful applicant will work closely with the Secretary to the Administrative Justice Council, the co-chair to the Academic Panel and a solicitor/member of our advice and pro bono panels. The role will include desk-based research, identifying stakeholders and interview partners, and assisting project leads with gathering empirical evidence through interviews. The internship will provide the opportunity to develop research, interview and drafting skills and to work closely with the advice, legal and academic sectors in this exciting new project.
Applications are sought from law or social science graduates who have completed their degree by the time they start the internship. Applicants should demonstrate an interest in the challenges affecting the administrative justice system and have excellent written and oral communication skills.
The Job Description is available here.
