Legal Support Project launched
The Law Centre’s Legal Support Project was formally launched on 1 March at the Law Society, in an event sponsored by Allen & Overy.
The Honourable Mr Justice Stephens, Karen MacKay, Chief Executive, FRU (Free Representation Unit) and Sinead Mulhern, Head of the Legal Support Project, spoke at the well attended event.
The new service is delivered by trained volunteers who will provide free advice and representation in social security appeals and industrial tribunals. The project is starting with social security cases and will progress to employment cases in the coming months.
