Rights of Women are looking for qualified family solicitors to provide legal advice in Central London.
They provide a safe space for women to talk to solicitors about sensitive and non-sensitive family related issues through a free advice phone line.
The volunteering only requires 2 hours per month.
Women Returners has launched a new Law Returners initiative, in partnership with the Law Society, to bring legal professionals back into mid to senior level roles following an extended career break. The pilot cross-company ‘returnship’ will be run in Manchester and Leeds with funding from the UK Government Equalities Office Returners Fund. The programme will run for 6 months from February 2019 with up to 40 participants.
Women Returners is looking to partner with legal employers in or near Manchester or Leeds, who recognise the benefits of diversity and who are interested in accessing this relatively untapped talent pool of returning professionals. If you are interested, find more here and contact Hazel@womenreturners.com as soon as possible. There is a limited number of places still available, which will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
If you are a legal professional with a career break of 12 months or more, register your interest in the programme by contacting Hazel@womenreturners.com and join Women Returners at their launch events in Manchester and Leeds in November. Find out more information here.
