    About us

  • Mentoring and placements

    To pursue a career in law, it is essential that students gain some insight into legal practice, know how to build networks and have practical hands on experience. We have developed several schemes which not only benefit our students, they benefit you too.

    Work experience schemes

    Works placements are invaluable to students; developing their practical legal skills and giving them an insight into the profession. These schemes may also be of benefit to you: employing focused and motivated law students is an extremely cost-effective and flexible solution for your short-term recruitment needs.

    We can assist you in organising a work experience scheme, including those which support your corporate social responsibility agenda.

    Mentoring scheme

    Some students are less likely than others to have made any contacts within the legal profession before they join the University. Our mentoring scheme addresses this by providing students with an individual contact from within the profession, from whose experience the student can benefit.

    Anyone from a second six pupil barrister or second year trainee can volunteer, and the scheme has been designed to provide the flexibility required by mentors with busy legal practices to maintain. Furthermore, your organisation does not need to be recruiting to get involved.

    The benefits to students are huge, but mentors also get satisfaction from supporting individuals by passing on valuable lessons from experience. Visit our mentoring pages for more information about our scheme.

    If you are interested in either of these schemes, contact us for more details, and find out how we can help you.
