    London, United Kingdom REDRESS

    REDRESS, the award-winning legal charity that seeks justice and reparation for torture survivors, is looking for a volunteer graphic designer to assist us with the layout of one of our annual reports.

    We need someone who can work quickly within 2-3 weeks from start to finish and who is able to design a 40-page report.

    The aim of the report is to showcase our most recent work on behalf of torture survivors around the world and encourage more people to get behind our cause.

    We will supply all the images and will provide guidance as needed. Preferred design software would be Publisher, but InDesign can be also used.

    This is a one-off task that can be completed from home or from our London offices. Lunch and travel expenses to the office will be covered.

    If you are interested, please email your CV and a few examples of your work to Eva Sanchis, REDRESS' Communications Officer, at ASAP.

    Thank you for applying.

    Annually Community Law in Action hosts an "Open Doors" event in conjunction with the Federal Courthouse of Baltimore city. At Open Doors local youth are invited to visit the courthouse and learn how the court system works. Students get to meet prosecutors, defense attorneys, judges, law clerks and other personnel.

This a great opportunity for any adult interested in learning more about the courthouse, networking with Baltimore's legal professionals and perhaps most importantly fostering an opportunity for youth to learn more about the legal system.

    London, United Kingdom Talk Action

    This dynamic course looks at the type of work a facilitator may take on. Including designing events, getting 'buy-in' from those attending, ensuring inclusiveness, with a special focus on dealing with problems and conflicts.
