Pathways To Law

Law is an exciting profession for people from all backgrounds, yet can appear almost impossible to get into for young people without the right connections and advice. Pathways to Law was launched in 2007 with funding from The Sutton Trust and The College of Law for students in year 12 and 13 students with no family history of higher education, who are interested in a career in law. The programme includes lectures and seminars delivered by members of the legal profession, a residential conference and a law firm placement.

Supporting these activities, the scheme’s online mentoring provided by Brightside enables participants to access up-to-date careers and university advice, receive regular news feeds from the legal world and benefit from the specific experience of their mentor.
