Rev. Dr. Dane Marks (Hons D.D.)- Board of Directors

Rev. Dane Marks has a keen passion to assist people in marginalized and low income backgrounds to get the support they need when they are facing legal issues.

Dane explains: Being a board member of the Community Law Project (CLP) is both a privilege and a responsibility. I see my role as a duty to serve the CLP family and the community who need us in distressing, frustrating and often complicated times. My role is to assist the CLP family and to facilitate them while we support others. I am grateful and truly blessed to be surrounded by the CLP legal support family and they motivate and inspire me to work both hard and smart on the project's behalf. I have a deep appreciation for the CLP family and I am honored to represent the CLP on their behalf.

Daniel Onafuwa,  LLB - 

Board of Directors

Hello I'm Daniel and I was part of the infamous 'Class of COVID 2020' in which I completed my law degree. I forged ahead seeking freedom from the shackles of the pandemic and the negative multiplier effects that it spread across society. I have a wealth of experience working at law firms and on government placements as well as volunteering at various charities with a wide variety of causes. I saw that the most vulnerable in society were excruciatingly made even further worse off than they already were. I saw how many of my peers were struggling to secure legal work experience and I saw the rapid decrease of resources that law firms suffered due to the dire situation of 2020. I wanted to find a way to change things. So this project is my vision brought to life.

Antonia Wilkinson, LLB - Board of Directors

I am a recent LLB Law and Criminology graduate currently living in Tetbury working as a supervisor. I have a passion for law and got into the legal world to be able to help people who are marginalised by society. Everyone deserves legal advice and I want to be able to make it accessible to everyone not just those who have money. I am intending on working towards a Psychology PhD but do not want to lose touch with the legal world and this can help me do that.
