Congratulations to our summer 2021 Interns
Congratulations to Brianna Underwood, Alex Reay, Alex Iseghohi Okoibhole, Lily Bowater and Eve Smith, our summer 2021 interns.
Brianna, Alex and Alex will be working with Central England Law Centre teams on some exciting projects dealing with Public Law and Human Rights issues, Rights in Peril in the community and the setting up and running of 'Litigants in Person' evaluation study. Lily and Eve will be working with the LinC Team and Warwickshire County Council Education Entitlement Team to look at developing a School Exclusions pilot project where LinC students and the CC will look to develop support for children and families in this area. The projects will take place over June and July and we very much look forward to updating you on what's been achieved later in the Summer.
Our project partners were impressed by the incredibly high standard of applications this year. Thanks to everyone who took part.

Public authorities sometimes make decisions that feel like they are incorrect or unfair.
Judicial review is a legal process that can be used to challenge such decisions, but many people don’t know about judicial review or, if they do, may think it means having to going to court, when often it doesn’t. The aim of this event is to promote awareness of judicial review in our local communities by explaining how it works in practice, when it might be relevant and how to find the right kind legal help. We are also interested in any ideas that you may have about what more could be done to make it more accessible.
A two-hour workshop to introduce and explain judicial review - Thursday 25 March, 1.30 - 3.30pm

New LinC Toolkit launched to help students with humanitarian protection access home fees and student finance
Recent developments in the law should make it easier for students with HP to claim ‘home fee’ status and to access student finance. But there is a risk that they may run into difficulties and so Central England Law Centre, with Warwick Law in the Community, have put together this useful toolkit to help you navigate this area of entitlement.
