Junior Lawyers Against Poverty

Legal Confidence Sessions

LAP, the senior lawyers’ network of Lawyers Against Poverty, works across the UK with vulnerable communities to provide access to information about legal rights.

Sessions provided have included supporting refugees and asylum seekers on a wide range of themes such as debt, employment, criminal justice, welfare, housing and social norms.

LAP works with groups across the UK to provide the sessions in partnership with local organisations providing support.

The legal confidence programme is currently expanding to include support to victims of domestic violence.

There are lots of opportunities for JLAP students to get involved in the legal confidence programme. For example, students interested in legal research can provide editorial oversight of the legal confidence workshop resources.
