The Legal Education Foundation is inviting applications for the newly created post of Justice First Fellowship Manager. The successful candidate will play a central role in the delivery of the Justice First Fellowship (JFF), which is a key element of our vision, mission and strategic objectives.
The Foundation established the JFF in 2013 to support the next generation of social justice lawyers. It has since funded over 120 Fellowships and is achieving excellent outcomes in supporting Fellows into employment in social justice law.
The JFF Manager is a new role, created to lead the consolidation and further development of the scheme. You will bring the core programme, project and relationship management skills that are essential to the role. Your experience could have been gained in a variety of settings. Experience of working or volunteering in the legal advice sector, the wider social justice arena, in delivering education and professional development programmes and grant making could all be helpful but what is essential is a commitment to the vision, mission and values of the Foundation.
People with lived experience of social welfare legal issues are underrepresented in our organisation, so we are actively recruiting and prioritising candidates who bring this understanding alongside other skills and expertise.

“It is positive to see the recognition by HMCTS of the critical importance of data in delivering a courts and tribunals system that works better for everyone. HMCTS has embraced an ambitious vision for data– now is the time to accelerate action to deliver this vision. Improving the data infrastructure is essential to effectively tackle the key challenges facing the justice system such as the current courts backlog. Collecting data to understand and evaluate the efficacy of different approaches to tackling case backlogs is critical to ensuring public money is being spent effectively. Work to improve the information we have on the experience of individuals who rely on the courts system is critical to building back fairer. Action to ensure that data collection and sharing practices do not move beyond public acceptability is vital to maintain public trust in the courts. The Treasury has just provided MoJ with a generous financial settlement in the recent Spending Review. I urge HMCTS to use this opportunity and additional funding to set out a clear plan with measurable objectives to tackle the current data deficit across our justice system.”
