Working with LJMU Law Clinic

We are very excited to announce an upcoming collaboration with the LJMU Law Clinic. Under the supervision of an experienced solicitor LJMU trained students will be completing the application forms for Exceptional Case Funding for Legal Aid for suitable clients we will refer to them.

ECF is a special type of legal aid administered by the Legal Aid Agency (LAA), part of the Ministry of Justice. ECF is made available to people who would not usually qualify for funding, to help with their case, because the issues involved are generally excluded from legal aid. However, if without legal advice or representation an individual could suffer a breach of their human rights ECF must be made available. This is going to be such an important project as these types of applications are extremely time consuming and often there are not enough resources available to help complete them which in turn means that a client may not be able to gain access to the funding required to help their case move forward.

We look forward to working with the LJMU Law Clinic on this project and hope to help many people going forward.
