FROM BIG VOICE LONDON
Big Voice are a youth engagement project that works with young people from disadvantaged backgrounds, to help them feel like they have a say in our legal system. The project is supported by, but independent of, the UK Supreme Court. The Court’s administration has provided support to our project from its inception, though we are an entirely separate organisation and the Court is in no way responsible for any of our activities. We also do work with the Law Commission, Judicial College and many others. Our last session of work culminated in an event in Parliament, where we presented ideas for legal reform at an event hosted by the Shadow-AG.

If you are interested in starting a Lawyers without Borders Chapter at UCL, you are strongly encouraged to attend the LWOB info session which will be held in Seminar Room 5 on January 15th at 6pm. Delivered by current members of LWOB, the talk will explain the kind of work LWOB does and how you can get involved.
This talk will be very important to helping us gauge the level of interest at UCL Law for LWOB and whether there is sufficient interest to warrant the establishment of a UCL LWOB Chapter. This project is open to both LLBs and LLMs.
If you are interested in joining LWOB but are unable to attend the info session, please email Shiva Riahi (firstname.lastname@example.org) to register your interest.
