Law Commission’s 2023 Research Assistant Recruitment

Dear Students,

I am getting in touch as the recruitment for Law Commission’s 2023 Research Assistant campaign is now live. The Law Commission is the statutory independent body created to keep the law of England and Wales under review and to recommend reform where it is needed. Each year we recruit up to 18 Research Assistants to help us with our work ensuring the law is simple, fair and modern. 

Joining us as a Research Assistant is a fantastic opportunity to master complex areas of law and help shape legal reform in England and Wales, whilst working side by side with the Commissioners. Our Research Assistants develop a range of skills and gain professional experience that is hard to obtain anywhere else.

The role is fixed-term for 51 weeks from September 2023, with the possibility of renewal for a further year upon application.

You may find the below posters (in English and Welsh) and our 2023 Guide for Applicants useful for advertising. The deadline for applications this year is 31 January 2023.

Full details of the role, eligibility criteria, and the application process can be found in our Guide for Applicants. Further materials, such as a ‘top tips’ document, CV template and a sample interview video are available on our website to help candidates perform well during the recruitment process.

If you have any questions about outreach, please do not hesitate to contact us. If your students have any queries about the role or the application process not answered by our guide, please ask them to contact us at
