Peer Support

Claiming Space

Claiming Space is a social enterprise that has grown from peer support groups to offering innovative training for lawyers working with vulnerable populations, based on experience, academic study and research.

Claiming Space run evening sessions which provide a non-judgemental monthly space to learn, share and reflect on our practice. This space has been created specifically for junior lawyers (10 years PQE or less) working in legal aid and social justice law. Our monthly meet-ups will always be free. First Monday of the month, every month 18.30-19.30. Sessions currently running online via Zoom. You can sign up for the sessions by completing the registration form here.
