Young Legal Aid Lawyers (YLAL) has recently published two accounts from junior lawyers telling their personal stories of what it is like to work in in legal aid and how important legal aid is to the clients they help.

They now want to hear from you!

They want to hear about your student loans, your journey to get a training contract or pupillage, your long days, your missing lunch breaks, your adjourned court hearings, your late nights, your vulnerable clients, your big case wins and why - despite all of the challenges - you became a legal aid lawyer.

Find out more about each blog and how to submit your stories.
