Role

Dundee Law Centre is seeking new trustees to join our Board of Directors.

Dundee Law Centre is a long-established charity offering free legal advice, assistance and representation to people living within Dundee who find themselves in difficult financial circumstances and in need of legal services.

Our main focus is to address unmet legal need within the area of Social Welfare Law. This is a much valued service which has become even more important following the impact of Covid 19 and the current Cost of Living Crisis. The service provided by the Law Centre is not replicated anywhere else in the City.

Dundee Law Centre is a charitable company limited by guarantee. Our legal services are delivered through a Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) staffed by registered qualified solicitors whose practice is regulated by the Law Society of Scotland.

The Board is currently seeking individuals with an interest in making a difference, to support the continued development and sustainability of the Law Centre.

In order to bring additional skills and expertise to the Board, we are seeking applications from dedicated individuals from wide ranging and diverse backgrounds including those with a background in law, finance, business, human resources, marketing, fundraising and the voluntary sector.

This is a great opportunity to get involved with the Law Centre at an exciting time in our development. New Board members will get the chance to make a difference and be a part of change in our organisation.

This is a voluntary unpaid position. The Board meets as a minimum 6 times a year.

Trustees do not need to have worked within a legal setting; just have a genuine interest in supporting the valuable work our organisation does and the communities that we serve.
