About Good Law Project
Good Law Project’s mission is to achieve change through the law. We defend, define and change the law to protect the environment, uphold democracy, and ensure no one is left behind. We are a young organisation with a great track record and are now planning to hire a senior public law litigator to join the legal team to further develop our work principally in our ‘no one left behind’ workstream, addressing injustice, discrimination and inequality experienced by some of the most marginalised groups in our society.

Reports to: Legal Director
Salary: £60,000 per annum with generous benefits
Hours: 35 per week, over 5 days
