In a basement office under the shadow of Grenfell Tower in west London – where discoloured water drips from the ceiling into a plastic bin – lawyers and caseworkers are this month celebrating the 50th anniversary of the UK’s first law centre.
Established in July 1970, North Kensington Law Centre pioneered a social justice movement aimed at making the law accessible to everyone. Austerity cuts to legal aid may have restricted its resources but they have not crushed its spirit.
