Learning Partner Opportunity

Innovative legal project seeks Learning Partner

The Public Law Project and Lankelly Chase are pleased to announce the launch of a joint 18 month pilot project looking at when and how to use legal intervention to assist front-line organisations challenge unfair systems. Through the project, Public Law Project will be working closely with Lankelly Chase grantees who assist those who are subject to multiple and severe disadvantage, to help them to identify and challenge unfair or unlawful systems affecting their client groups.

We are seeking a Learning Partner to act as critical friend to the pilot, aiding reflection and adaptation as the project advances and capturing learning about when and how litigation could be deployed in future as part of a collective strategy to mitigate severe and multiple disadvantage. The Learning Partner will work closely with PLP from the beginning of October 2017, provide a quarterly review of learning and progress and ongoing monitoring and evaluation.

For more information please see the tender document, which is available in word and PDF formats.


I know of no duty of the court which is more important to observe, and no power of the court which is more important to enforce, than its power of keeping public bodies within their rights.
