Are you an adviser, lawyer or working with a charity or civil society organisation in the South West?
Public Law Project is organising this event, in partnership with Plymouth Citizen’s Advice and the University of Plymouth, to help up-skill advisers and those looking to use the law to help people experiencing disadvantage or discrimination.
The day will include training on:
- Strategic use of the law
- Accessing legal aid and legal aid Exceptional Case Funding (ECF)
- The EU Settled Status Scheme
- The impact of move to online courts, and
- ‘Do no harm’ training which concerns exceptional circumstances legislation within the Employment and Support Allowance (ESA) and Universal Credit (UC) regulations.
We are also inviting delegates to suggest additional subjects for training.
The conference also provides a wider forum for civil society to discuss access to justice with expert lawyers and to identify how we can work together to tackle the current specialist advice deficit in the South West.
