MiCLU offers bespoke training on issues relating to migrant and refugee children’s rights to a range of organisations and individuals, including:

  • British Red Cross

  • UNHCR
  • Local Authorities

We also work with young people to design and deliver training for young people and professionals supporting them. We’ve enjoyed a close working relationship with the young people from Brighter Futures (based at Praxis) for many years. Look out for our lawyer Anna who was interviewed by some of the young people at Brighter Futures in this brilliant video: https://youtu.be/UyTOMYjpuHs

In 2016 MiCLU received funding from the Legal Education Foundation to develop and deliver Responsibility Shared, an innovative new legal education programme to increase awareness of child rights law amongst professionals who work directly with migrant and refugee children in the UK. One of the events held as part of Responsibility Shared was our #PrecariousCitizenship conference. Click here to access the resources from the event.

For further details about the programme, please see the Responsibility Shared section below.

Responsibility Shared: Children’s Rights Legal Education Programme

Children in the ClassroomMiCLU is delighted to have received funding from the Legal Education Foundation to develop and deliver ‘Responsibility Shared,’ an innovative new legal education programme to increase awareness of child rights law amongst professionals who work directly with migrant and refugee children and young people in the UK, with the aim of improving quality advice and support provision for this vulnerable group.

Responsibility Shared takes a unique approach to the design and delivery of legal education and children’s rights awareness. Our programme is highly collaborative and multi-disciplinary and we work closely with lawyers, academics, social and health care professionals and many more to create a platform where together we can share expertise and knowledge to protect children and young people. The programme includes free workshops and events across the UK and online webinars and learning tools available to all.

We have received a lot of interest from professionals who would like to partner with us as part of the programme. If you would like to collaborate on a Responsibility Shared project or discuss a free training opportunity tailored for your staff and/or community, please contact us at miclu@islingtonlaw.org.uk or complete the contact form.
