Warwick LinC Annual Report 2021 - 2022

Warwick School of Law's Law in the Community project has published its Annual Report for 2021/2022.

2021/22 has been a very positive year for Warwick Law in the Community (LinC). The first half of the year was affected by the ongoing impact of Covid-19 due to the necessity to limit in-person interactions in our clinics. However students managed to achieve a huge amount and and pursue excellent opportunities and returned to in-person work in the latter pat of the year.

Our Immigration and Asylum clinic focused on supporting Exceptional Case Funding applications for legal aid. Twelve students worked on the clinic, assisting with these applications and completing research tasks related to specific cases. Our Strategic Public Law Clinic has worked across three substantial new projects this year on issues related to homelessness, social care and poverty. The clinic has also continued to make use of the work of a number of previous years' projects and see real impact from this work. Our Public Legal Education Module students have worked with a range of organisations on four different projects related to housing-rights, precarious employment, carers’ rights and healthcare in immigration removal centres. LinC has also been involved in other projects which included working with Warwickshire County Council to produce a film for parents outlining their legal rights regarding school exclusions.

In 2021/2022 LinC provided 81 law students with opportunities to volunteer in the local community and build up their own skills outside their studies. To find out more about LinC's activities you can find our annual report hereLink opens in a new window.
