Every member of our team are experienced and trained to work with women who have been affected by violence. We offer dedicated legal projects staffed by highly experienced female solicitors specifically for women. We are the legal partner in the Scottish Government funded Scottish Women’s Rights Centre, and we operate the project JustRight for Refugee Women.
The Scottish Women’s Rights Centre (SWRC) is an innovative collaborative project which brings together the expertise of JustRight Scotland with Rape Crisis Scotland and the University of Strathclyde Law Clinic. The SWRC works with women who have been affected by Gender Based Violence (you can find out more about what Gender Based Violence is here on the SWRC site) and improves their access to justice and experience of the legal processes they may require to come in contact with.
JustRight for Refugee Women aims to improve access to justice for, and increase protection of, refugee and migrant women and girls in Scotland who have been affected by violence. We will provide specialist, early and targeted legal casework to individuals in the fields of asylum and immigration law and other relevant legal matters, provide advice to individuals and professionals through specialist advice lines and legal surgeries, and will share expertise at a national and international level.
