Internship Opportunity

Warwick LinC is excited to announce internship opportunities for two students with Law for Life: The Foundation of Public Legal Education. This placement is exploring the intersection between disability rights and housing law, particularly within the private rented sector.

In this placement you will be helping Law for Life prepare for the public legal education programme on housing rights for organisations helping people with disabilities with housing issues. The programme will consist of four workshops on:

● tenancies and other housing arrangements

● dealing with disrepair

● Section 21 evictions

● Benefits and housing

The placement will involve researching the main issues faced by people with different kinds of disabilities in the context of the housing crisis. This will include familiarising yourself with the ways in which the Equality Act and other pieces of relevant law intersect with housing legislation, conducting original research on the key issues and intersections, and researching organisations which work with these groups to both interview about their experiences and potentially to attend the education programmes.

The internship will run throughout term 2 and you will be asked to commit 2-5 hours of your time per week to the programme, with bi-weekly meetings scheduled with the Law for Life team.


To qualify for the internship, you must be a 2nd or 3rd year student who has previously participated in the Warwick Law in the Community Programme, such as the Strategic Social Justice Clinic, Asylum and Immigration Law Clinic or summer internships. You must demonstrate a commitment to social justice, good organisational skills and timekeeping skills, strong written and oral communication skills, good research and analytical skills, and the ability to work well as a team. While some knowledge of housing law is advantageous, it is not mandatory.

To apply, please send a copy of your cv and a 500-word statement of interest explaining why you are well-suited to working on the project by December 22nd, 2023, to

Interviews will be conducted in the week commencing 8th January 2024.
