Big Voice London is a social mobility charity which explores issues of legal identity, access to justice and the democratic legitimacy of the legal system within the UK through various projects. Its projects seek to empower young people, who may feel distanced from the world of courts and lawyers by demystifying the legal system and helping young people have a voice in legal policy.
As a Coordinator, you would work alongside a group of three other Coordinators and the CEO organising and running the programmes and events for the students. This will include tasks such as student and volunteer recruitment, liaising with venues, sponsors, supporters, volunteers and students.
Evidence of strong organisational skills is desirable.
Most importantly however we are looking for committed individuals who are passionate about assisting with increasing social mobility in the legal profession and who enjoy working with and inspiring young people to achieve their full potential.
We are ideally looking for people to commit for a minimum of three months.

You would work with a class of A-Level students to teach them the chosen subject and guide them through a critical analysis of law. Depending on the project, you are likely to be tasked with finding expert speakers, listening to the students' ideas and helping them to prepare for a debate and possibly produce a final report.

We are once again offering our students the opportunity to compete in our Mooting Competition in association with the Supreme Court. A "moot" simulates a court hearing (usually an appeal), in which participants analyse a fictional case, research the relevant law, prepare written submissions and then present an oral argument.
We are looking for law students or recent graduates (including LLB, LLM, LPC, BPTC, GDL, PhD etc.) to act as Moot Mentors. Successful applicants will moot alongside A-Level students which Big Voice London works with and will act as mooting partners/mentors throughout the competition. This structure builds both the students' and Moot Mentors' advocacy skills, knowledge of the law and research skills, while also enabling Moot Mentors to give back to those just starting out in their journey into law.
To apply, please click here to complete an application form. The deadline for applications is 1pm on Sunday 26 January 2020.
