Junior Lawyers Against Poverty
Junior Lawyers Against Poverty is an offshoot of Oxfam’s Lawyers Against Poverty project that aims to relieve poverty through through improving knowledge of legal rights, alleviating lack of access to justice affecting poor, improving recruitment and retention of women in law and remedying lack of access to resources for Law students.
The project runs talks by notable lawyers and Oxfam figures, facilitates student fundraising, and provides the opportunity for students to assist and correspond with students in under-developed countries. The project is also one of a select few universities to engage with the Lawyers Against Poverty blog, essay competition and opportunity to participate in an exciting pro bono internship in a foreign country.
