The Community Law Project UK Ltd is a community based legal company that assists people on low incomes in their legal matters. Research indicates that people on low income have been made the most vulnerable and most likely to face problems accessing legal remedies since the passing of the LASPO Act 2012. The further restrictions on legal impinged on the rights of individual access to professional legal assistance. We aim to bridge the gap between people who need access to justice and legal remedies alongside the professionals who can assist them.
The issues have been exacerbated due to the global pandemic, which has severely impacted the most vulnerable even more so. The negative ramifications have affected the legal industry, particularly law firms. This has in turn impacted the futures of many young legal professionals seeking work. Many internships have been cancelled or postponed, leaving many in the field out of work, particularly recent graduates. Many law firms on top of the legal aid cuts and the results of the pandemic, do not have the capacity or resources to take on the ever-growing number of cases that these low-income people want to bring forth. We sought a solution to solve all these issues at once.
Our team consists of primarily law students and graduates but overall those who are incredibly passionate about using the law to help bring access to justice within their communities. They will assist the community as paralegals to compile cases and evidence for viable cases on behalf of the relevant legal firms. Our main priority is to help community members and law firms prepare to deal with cases presented to them.
Many of those who bring cases are not legally trained and do not know how to compile evidence correctly and may find it difficult to structure said evidence in a cohesive manner to present to their legal firm with a summary of the case.
Clients on low incomes may have further difficulties in accessing emails, printers, scanners or even the internet. Many are caught within the endless cycle of service jumping as many cannot find a service that can completely fill their legal needs and thus keep being referred from one place to another. The limited advice they get from pro bono sessions with lawyers are sporadic and can only be within a 30-minute time span in many cases. To combat this, we have secured a partnership with 350 law firms that provides a 24/7 legal advice live chat tool on our website to give quick, accessible advice at one’s convenience.
Our company is free to register with as a volunteer or a paralegal. Anyone is welcome to sign up who is interested in making their community a better place regardless of degree.
