InterLawADVANCE

Part of our mission at the InterLaw Diversity Forum is to support diverse talent along the career pipeline. Our research has shown that diverse talent faces increased challenges, and that the 'more boxes you tick' (i.e. intersectionality), the greater those challenges become.

 

To aid the career progression of talent (both lawyers and business services) from all strands of diversity and inclusion (including LGBT+, BAME, Disability, Gender, and social mobility), we will be working with select members and partners who want to reach the broadest applicant pool possible so that they can source the best talent for their organisations.

If your organisation is interested in participating, please contact:

The work will include assessing the markets’ DEI strategies against the GDEI enterprise-wide strategy and support the journey of each market to become an industry leader in the space.

Fee-paid judges

There are 150 vacancies for Fee-paid Judge of the First-tier Tribunal, with vacancies across all 7 chambers. Tribunals often sit as panels consisting of a legally qualified chair (the judge) and non-legal members with specific areas of expertise. During the hearing the judge must ensure that the overriding objective (to deal with cases fairly and justly) is observed, which will include all parties having the opportunity to participate in proceedings as fully and fairly as possible. Many cases involve individuals putting their own case forward without legal assistance. The judge should therefore help ensure the system is accessible to all by guiding parties through the procedures appropriately. Except in cases that involve national security or evidence of a very personal nature, substantive final hearings in tribunal cases are held in public.

 

There are  50 vacancies for Fee-paid Judge of the Employment Tribunals (England and Wales). Employment judges in England and Wales preside over Employment Tribunals, the jurisdiction of which involves a wide range of workplace disputes involving claims against employers, individuals, trade unions, professional and regulatory bodies. There are currently more than 90 different causes of action that can be brought to the Employment Tribunals.
