School Placements, Young People and Non-Legal Volunteers

The Scottish Child Law Centre runs a successful school placements, administration/non-legal volunteer programme with year round places.  Non-legal volunteers are usually people with office work experience or with non-law related skills which the Child Law Centre can benefit from (e.g. media, statistics, events management or DIY skills).    We also offer work experience placements for school pupils.
