Profit with a purpose: Cabot Law, a new project
Law Centres in the south west have come together to pioneer a new Community Interest Company (CIC) which will specialise in immigration law.
Cabot Law is scheduled to open in spring 2017 thanks to funding from the Legal Education Foundation and the Future Advice Fund.
Cabot Law will build on the tried and tested model of offering an administrative support to freelance consultants working in immigration law.
Uniquely, the CIC will return all profits to Avon and Bristol Law Centre, Gloucester Law Centre and Wiltshire Law Centre.
This partnership is just one example of how Law Centres have responded to cuts in Legal Aid by diversifying their income so they can continue to meet unprecedented demand for their social welfare services.
“Finding the right team is about finding people who share the project’s 'Justice for All’ values.”
We are committed to providing a working space that is supportive, professional and flexible. A place where the client comes first and services are tailored to their individual needs.
The enterprising project harnesses the Law Centres’ strengths and experience to develop a new service to a new client base. We have been very deliberate about not undertaking any work that remains within the scope of the legal aid system.
