Transparency Legal Advice Centre Overview
Transparency Legal Advice Centre (TLAC) is a not-for-profit, independent law centre registered with the Law Society of Ireland. We specialise in providing legal advice to workers in Ireland who are considering disclosing, or have already disclosed, suspected wrongdoing in their workplace under the Protected Disclosures Acts or as otherwise provided for in law. TLAC was established by Transparency International Ireland (TI Ireland), the Irish chapter of the global coalition against corruption. We work closely with TI Ireland and collaborate with and advise them on matters of mutual concern.
Primary Purpose of the Role
TLAC is seeking to recruit Legal Adviser to support a small team of lawyers and volunteers in the effective delivery of legal services to clients. TLAC does not provide litigation support to clients and the role does not involve litigation on behalf of workers. The position will report to the Managing Solicitor and support the running of the centre in pursuance of the charitable objectives of TLAC. This is an exciting opportunity for anyone who wishes to work in a developing and highly topical area of law.
