The States of Guernsey are looking for a Child and Social Care Lawyer to join the Law Officers of the Crown.

The Law Officers’ Chambers are responsible for providing legal advice and assistance, including representation, to the governments of Guernsey, Alderney and Sark and other public sector clients.

The Civil Litigation team requires a lawyer with relevant experience to assist in the provision of legal advice on a range of legal issues relating to social care, in particular focusing on child protection work. This includes providing day to day advice and the preparation of tribunal and court proceedings across the full range of public law children cases and adoption. You will also assist in responding to the increasing demand for advice in relation to adult social care, including capacity and safeguarding issues.

While you will not be expected to undertake the advocacy in their cases you will, on occasion, need to attend court to assist.
