University of West LondonWho are we?
The Community Advice Programme is hosted by the WLEC. For 25 years CAP has been providing training and work placement programmes to the students of Ealing Law School, University of West London (UWL)
This free advice clinic takes place every other Saturday and every day 50 weeks of the year, where local volunteer solicitors, barristers and students from UWL give advice to members of the public on all areas of community human rights and equality laws. Thus, training and placements have led to over 30 students/volunteers obtaining paid employment annually.
The result of students on work placements being able to experience working with clients whom they can advise, represent and obtain remedies for. This unique collaboration with the UWL has proven a great success over 25 years, producing a host of employment opportunities and resulting in alumni practitioners such as Jo De Souza and Judge Andonian devoting many years to helping train and up skilling students, including providing training contracts and other avenues if entry into their chosen careers.
The majority of students and volunteers are from deprived backgrounds, so WLEC and CAP provide opportunity for social mobility.
