Public Interest Litigation Lab

The Public Interest Litigation Lab module is a final year module which places students in the position of strategic public law litigators and human rights investigators. Working with external civil society organisations as clients, students will investigate, in groups, how a potentially unlawful government policy or practice is operating in the UK. They will compile and assess the evidence base (which will be passed on to a external client organisation), before undertaking an analysis of the potential public law and human rights arguments that could be made. The course will therefore simulate for students how complex public interest litigation is developed.
