Support in England & Wales
A wealth of support programmes and mentoring opportunities are available to prospective and undergraduate law students from disadvantaged backgrounds to facilitate a career in law. These programmes enable students to network and build connections with solicitors in the profession, to develop transferable skills and to learn more about the various paths into the legal field. Law firms and other employers value involvement in such programmes as it signifies initiative and commitment to the legal career. Often, these programmes are used as a pipeline for future recruitment so impressing a firm could lead to employment in the future!
