UCL Laws Undergraduate Programmes

Pro Bono at UCL Laws

At UCL Faculty of Laws we encourage our students to put their knowledge and skills to practical use in the community and see how the law can be used as an effective instrument for social change. We provide opportunities and support students in a range of activities from shadowing lawyers on active casework to educating local school children about their rights and working on international human rights campaigns. These activities are managed and overseen the UCL Centre for Access to Justice (CAJ), which was launched in March 2013.

A full listing of the Faculty's pro bono programme can be found on the Pro Bono Projects page of the CAJ website.

The Faculty also recognises the importance of clinical legal education and provides a unique opportunity for students to take a final year course entitled Access to Justice and Community Engagement through the CAJ. This course allows students to conduct casework together with leading UK legal charities in the areas of social welfare, employment, and education law. For more course information and on student pro bono activities at UCL generally, contact the Centre for Access to Justice Director, Jacqueline Kinghan: j.kinghan@ucl.ac.uk or see the UCL CAJ website.
