Rev. Dane Marks (Hons D.D.) (LLB)- Co-Founder/Board of Directors
Rev. Dane Marks has a keen passion to assist people in marginalized and low income backgrounds to get the support they need when they are facing legal issues.
Dane explains: Being a co-founder and board member of the National Community Law Project CIC (NCLP) is both a privilege and a responsibility. I see my role as a duty to serve the NCLP family and the community who need us in distressing, frustrating and often complicated times. My role is to assist the NCLP family and to facilitate them while we support others. I am grateful and truly blessed to be surrounded by the NCLP legal support family and they motivate and inspire me to work both hard and smart on the project's behalf. I have a deep appreciation for the NCLP family and I am honored to represent the NCLP on their behalf.
Daniel Onafuwa, LLB -
Co-Founder/Board of Directors
Head of Team Management & Onboarding
Hello I'm Daniel and I was part of the infamous 'Class of COVID 2020' in which I completed my law degree. I forged ahead seeking freedom from the shackles of the pandemic and the negative multiplier effects that it spread across society. I have a wealth of experience working at law firms and on government placements as well as volunteering at various charities with a wide variety of causes. I saw that the most vulnerable in society were excruciatingly made even further worse off than they already were. I saw how many of my peers were struggling to secure legal work experience and I saw the rapid decrease of resources that law firms suffered due to the dire situation of 2020. I wanted to find a way to change things. So this project is my vision brought to life.

Nia Capper- Associate Director, Head of Fundraising
Hello, I'm Nia and I am currently a First-Year student at Cardiff University studying LLB Law. Passionately driven in the pursuit of justice, I plan to use my role as Head of Fundraising and (Public Relations) to build funds that will allow the project to reach its full potential and goal, providing equal access to justice to those underprivileged across the Nation. Playing an essential role in achieving this goal is exciting and a rewarding challenge, one I wish to accomplish with the help of our Community and Nation.
Laura Wiseman- Associate Director, Co-Manager of Client Care Team
Hello, I’m Laura I am currently a second year Law and Criminology student with the intentions of converting my existing degree into a full LLB and then on to pursuing a career as a barrister. I have chosen to study the discipline of Criminology initially due to its expansive connections to wider social concerns, supporting my interest in human rights. This I see as a useful starting point with NCLP, to engage with issues that affect individuals in society and to provide for a broadened knowledge of the impacts of injustice. I am passionate about providing support to others, assisting with providing a voice to the most vulnerable and ensuring people always have a support network through even the hardest of times. NCLP has provided me with the opportunity to gain valuable experience alongside my studies and I remain in awe of the dedication of all the individuals involved in making this project successful for those that require its services.
Tracey Malcolm- Associate Director, Co-Manager of Client Care Team
Hi, I’m Tracey and I am in the final stages of the LLB degree with the OU, having studied part time as a (very) mature student. I joined the NCLP CIC as I truly believe in everything we stand for. Any legal process can be daunting and overwhelming, confusing and at times, intimidating. Everyone should have access to justice, regardless of their circumstances and regardless of which branch of the Law they find themselves having to try to understand. It is my aim that none of our clients should walk any legal journey alone or unsupported. I feel privileged to be an Associate Director with fantastic colleagues to work alongside, particularly in Client Care where our team are dedicated and hardworking, putting our clients at the core of all that we do.
