Harrow Law Centre is a small, effective and forward-thinking Law Centre.  If you join us you will be part of a charity with a long record of positive impact for people who use its services and have the opportunity to make your mark in a meaningful way.

 Victims of Crime Unit 4 days per week

Harrow Law Centre was the first law centre to establish a Victims of Crime project 3 years ago and this work is now being replicated in other Law Centres.  The need for this project was driven by the experiences of our clients and in particular those who had experienced hate crime and sexual assault who had been failed by the statutory authorities. We are looking to recruit a solicitor to help develop and expand this area of work.

Criminal Defence  Full time or part time applications welcome

We have recently secured a legal aid contract in crime and will be starting to undertake criminal defence work from October 2022. We wish to recruit two solicitors one of which meets the criteria for criminal supervisor status.  This is a new area of work for us and we aim to prioritise areas of law related to poverty and civil rights.
