Thank you for your interest in the Campaigns Director role at Good Law Project.

Good Law Project doesn’t just bring legal challenges – we campaign using the law.

Change happens where you attach political pain to wrongdoing – and that means campaigning.

The past couple of years have been quite something for Good Law Project. With the support of our 30,000 regular donors and our mailing list of over 200,000, we have fought tirelessly to uphold democratic values, for communities driven to society’s margins, and to protect our environment.

There has been much to do to ensure the Government is held accountable, and we’ve secured several pivotal rulings on standards in public life, most notably over Government contracts and jobs. This is as a result of determined investigation, campaigning and legal action by our team. Each ruling has strengthened the guardrails of government and made it harder for such abuses of access and authority to recur.

Alongside our campaigning to protect the UK’s increasingly fragile democracy, we are also seeking to respond to the existential threat posed by the climate crisis. This week we won a landmark legal challenge alongside ClientEarth and Friends of the Earth, over the Government’s threadbare strategy for achieving Net Zero by 2050. The Court has ordered Ministers to go back to the drawing board and produce a revised strategy by March 2023.

The final key pillar of Good Law Project’s work is to stand alongside under-represented and marginalised communities. We want to help create space in which they are heard by those who need to. Our work has ranged from partnering with the Traveller Movement to confront the prejudice Gypsy, Roma and Traveller communities still face, to standing alongside the Windrush Generation and trans communities as they face an increasingly hostile state.

Our team has grown to meet the challenges, from 2 staff at the beginning of 2020 to 26 people today. We hope to continue to expand our capacity to communicate, advocate and fundraise, while strengthening our administrative and organisational functions.

Our work is not possible without the generous, dedicated support of our donors. Their steadfast commitment to Good Law Project’s work is a constant source of inspiration and energy. It reflects, I think, a dawning realisation across the UK that, whatever the reason, we have ceased to be self-righting as a society. The mechanisms that once existed are no longer working.

We want to help communities litigate for themselves. To introduce lawyers to the causes they want to support. And to use the law more and more to tackle poverty. And in the coming weeks and months, we will be launching some major new initiatives. It’s an exciting time to be at Good Law Project, as we move from start up to institution and hopefully a useful part of civil society.
