The Bonavero Institute Summer Fellowship at the Public Law Project (PLP) in London is an eight-week internship, tenable from early July to late September 2019.

About The Public Law Project (PLP)

The Public Law Project (PLP) is a national legal charity which aims to advance public law and improve access to justice. Uniquely for an organisation of its kind, PLP undertakes research, policy initiatives, training and direct casework, including strategic litigation. It has a specialist in-house legal team consisting of both solicitors and barristers. 

PLP has been involved in some of the most high-profile domestic public interest ligation in recent years, including the recent PIP benefits challenge and various challenges arising from the implementation of LASPO.

About the internship at PLP

The fellow will be working on a project concerning how to optimise the use of research into the strategic litigation process. This will involve working closely with both researchers and the casework team at PLP, and being involved in the production of an original piece of practical research.

About the Bonavero Fellowship at PLP

The successful candidate will receive a maximum of £2,700 to cover travel, living and other expenses associated with the internship. In determining the amount to be awarded, other sources of funding will be taken into account.
