Evidence and Strategic Litigation Research Project
King’s Legal Clinic, in collaboration with Dr Joseph Tomlinson, Lecturer in Public Law, is giving students the opportunity to volunteer and work on the Evidence and Strategic Litigation Research Project.
Evidence gathering is a key legal skill. In strategic judicial reviews—which seek to challenge laws, policies, or systems—evidence gathering can be particularly demanding.
This short project will involve students being provided with initial training on how evidence gathering in strategic judicial review works and how judges handle it. Students will then work together to research a particular policy development where there are concerns about legality, to explore the available evidence base.
What is expected of students when getting involved with the Evidence & Strategic Litigation Project?
Who is eligible to apply?
