Head of Legal Affairs

This new role offers an exciting new way for anyone with an interest in law to join the YouthPolitics Executive Committee. As an exciting & growing organisation, such a role is imperative to our success. The role is suitable for anyone between the age of 16-25 who has experience, knowledge or an interest in the law and is an incredible asset to have on CVs or UCAS Applications. In addition, as we attend events across the UK, working with prestigious organisations and meeting industry experts, the connections you will make within the role are also endless!


The role itself will require dedication and a keen attention to detail. It will not be too time consuming, as members of the executive committee are all young volunteers who are also in full time education. The key focus of the role will be on ensuring the organisation complies with data protection and copyright laws. But you will also be a member of the executive committee, which means you will get to vote and decide on measures which affect the entirety of the organisation. We shall strive to ensure that you have a team to support you in your role, but you will also have the support of members of our advisory board which include some leading figures in the legal world. You will also be expected to attend the monthly meeting of the executive committee (we’re a friendly bunch!).


No specific qualifications are required, just a passion for the work of the organisation and the law is desired.

If the role sounds like it is right up your street, just fill out the application form and attach it when applying. You also have an option to send us another letter with more information if you would like – but this isn’t necessary. We would love to have you on board!
