Calling all law students!

Over the last 2 years, we’ve been contacted by many law students from across the UK telling us they want to get involved with CEASE. They’ve been at different stages and on different legal pathways, but they’ve all been passionate about human rights, and joining the movement to end sexual exploitation.

So, we’re excited to announce that this year we will be launching a Legal Advocacy programme just for law students.

You’ll have the chance to learn more about the reality of sexual exploitation in the 21st century, through a legal lens. Through webinars and workshops we’ll cover prostitution and the global sex trade, human trafficking, the online pornography industry, and the wider links to other forms of sexual exploitation.

You’ll be able to take action through CEASE campaigns and spread word of vital law reforms that are needed to bring an end to sexual exploitation.

The programme will start in the Autumn, but you can register interest now by emailing our Head of Legal Advocacy [Tom Farr – [email protected]] We’d love to hear from you.

(If you’re a student but you aren’t studying law – don’t worry! We’re also launching a Gen Z programme for all 17-27s who want to bring an end to sexual exploitation. Please email us at  [email protected] for further information).

Legal Advocacy Student Blog

Do you write well? Are you looking for ways to build your CV and hone your legal knowledge and research skills? Then you could be a blogger on our Legal Advocacy Student Blog.

You’ll (hopefully) be familiar with our weekly CEASE blog where we dissect current media stories and sector developments. (Follow us on Twitter to stay connected.)

Our new blog, written by and for law students, will zoom in on issues pertaining to sexual exploitation, through a legal lens. Do you have an idea for how the Modern Slavery Act 2015 could be reformed? What about how to reform the Sexual Offences Act 2003 to protect victims of sexual exploitation? Then this blog could be the place for you to share it with your peers.

We are looking for pitches for blogs that cover a broad range of legal practice areas – including but not limited to human rights law, criminal law, and immigration law – dealing with a specific issue that you think is current and deserving of attention.

This opportunity is open to students of all levels – including Undergraduate, GDL, BPTC/BTC, and LLM/MA students – and would be perfect for any student who is looking to enhance their CV in between – or in the run up to – pupillage or training contract application season.

We are looking for a select number of students who are passionate about and committed to human rights, and raising awareness about the anti-sexual exploitation movement by sharing your work for CEASE amongst your peers and wider network.
