Mind the Justice Gap- New Access to Justice Project for UCL Students

June 22, 2012

We are delighted to partner with The Justice Gap and Hackney Community Law Centre on a major new public legal education project aimed at explaining legal rights to young people in Hackney. UCL students will research and write the content of the ‘Mind the Justice Gap’ guide, informed by a series of events in Hackney schools and colleges. 

The aim of the project is to explain to young people key concepts about the law, as well as demystifying the law and encouraging an understanding that the law is not simply something that young people come into conflict with.  It has been established by Jon Robins at The Justice Gap and is supported by Lord Bach, former justice secretary, leading barrister Michael Mansfield QC and UCL’s new Chair in Law and Professional Ethics, Prof Richard Moorhead.
