‘Improving justice is an ambitious but worthy endeavour.’
Welcome to the UKLSA – a charitable organisation with the primary goal of contributing to improving justice and equality.
We focus on future lawyers – law students, law graduate and early career lawyers, including:
Providing support to improve access to the profession, which in turn would enable a profession more representative of society;
Raising awareness of the dangers of inequality and advantages of equality – inequality being contagious; and
Raising awareness of the realities of access to justice and how access can be improved.
Why we carry out our work?
We work for better legal training because today’s students and trainees are the future officers of justice, and therefore key to tomorrow’s justice for all.
We promote equal access to justice because ‘
(in access to justice) is the heart of justice
We promote equal access to the profession because a legal system which is representative of the
of the population is a prerequisite to justice for all.
We promote awareness of equality because a sense of equality is essential for stakeholders / officers of the justice system, and therefore it improves justice.
We provide a platform for dissemination of quality research, and promote legal thinking, because these are
tools which all people can use
to give their contributing to justice.
We provide a platform for international knowledge exchange and collaborations because that leads to faster progress towards improved justice.
