Pathways to Law, a programme run by LSE’s Widening Participation team, has been shortlisted in the ‘Equality and Diversity’ category for the Law Society’s Excellence Awards 2010.
The Pathways to Law scheme, a project run in conjunction with The College of Law and The Sutton Trust, targets state school pupils who are the first generation of their family to attend university and provides support throughout years 12 and 13 and beyond. It is backed by universities, law firms and The Law Society, enabling a varied programme of lectures, seminars, advice sessions, and e-mentoring, plus an invaluable law firm placement.
LSE jointly run the programme with UCL for students in the London region, and is now recruiting 75 students for cohort 4. Since it began in 2007, more than 1,100 students have participated in the scheme, with 200 students graduating through the LSE programme.
