Recruiting research assistants at the Law Commission (deadline Feb 1)

The Law Commission has recently launched a research assistant recruitment campaign for 2019. 

Every year, the Law Commission recruits up to 18 research assistants to help make the law simple, modern and fair.

 The role is fixed-term for 51 weeks, with the possibility of renewal for a further year upon application.  

It’s a fantastic opportunity to master complex areas of law and help shape UK legal reform, whilst working side by side with the Commissioners. 

The Law Commission's research assistants develop a range of skills and gain professional experience that is hard to obtain anywhere else, and they all go onto great jobs in law and policy. Applications close on 1 February 2019.

 Please find links to posters advertising the opportunity (in English and Welsh), the 2019 application guide and a document with top tips for applicants:
