We are looking for a new LAA qualified category housing supervisor to run our Kingston office and to expand our capacity to undertake housing work. You will be working with a paralegal. There are currently 7 solicitors in the housing team, one trainee and two paralegals across our 4 branch offices. We run a wide range of housing covered by Legal Aid including a significant amount of representation work as part of the housing court duty schemes including the court in Kingston. We are looking for an energetic lawyer who can expand our work in Kingston as the court is likely to become more significant with the proposals to close Wandsworth Court. We are also in discussions with Surrey Law Centre over the possibility of some joint working. We are considering looking further at a range of fixed fees and conditional fee agreements for areas that have now gone out of scope of Legal Aid.
