Hybrid Team Leader – The National Community Law Project CIC

Hi, I’m Charlie, a second-year law student at Cardiff University and an aspiring criminal barrister. My role within the NCLP is a ‘hybrid team leader’, this means I liaise with clients at our drop-in sessions and feedback to the remote team to investigate further. With my specific career goal, The National Community Law Project allows me to build my client conferencing skills, improve on my legal research and grow my confidence. The ability to deal with real life cases exposes me to the true aspects of the law and will certainly benefit my future legal career.

Asawar Kadhem

My name is Asawar Kadhem, and I am a student at The University of Law. I am currently in my second year studying LPC & LLM. I chose to study law because I like helping people in need of legal advice to witness achievements and experiences once the client's legal problems are solved. Therefore, I chose the National Community Law Project CIC as it gives that opportunity to students like me who want to experience the law in practice and learn from it. I developed communication and problem-solving skills while pursuing my law degree but I am willing to learn more about law because I aspired to be a solicitor, and I am interested in Family, Immigration, Tort and Criminal Laws. In any case, I am open to covering any area of law because it is fascinating, and law affects our daily lives. I am aiming to secure a training contract while completing my LPC & LLM.”
