My name is Vida and I participated on the Pathways to Law Programme from 2008 to 2010. I thoroughly enjoyed visiting the LSE campus, meeting like-minded students and gaining an insight into what reading Law would actually be like. I went on to study Law at LSE and I strongly believe that being on the programme helped me to understand better what studying at such a university would be like.
I enjoyed my time on the programme so much that I went on to become a mentor on the Pathways to Law Programme whilst at LSE and I have also assisted at the National Conference since graduating from LSE. I think the programme is such an invaluable tool for students who may be considering a studying law or considering a legal career and I was very eager to help and give back to the programme in any way I could.
I am now an associate at White and Case LLP and I am forever grateful for the insight Pathways to Law gave me into the legal profession. I would definitely recommend the programme to anyone interested in the subject or the legal profession.

Pathways to Law has helped me understand what it takes to become successful in the legal profession. It has given me an insight into the different career paths and has helped me make an informed choice as to what career I want to pursue. The programme has also prepared me for university life and has ensured that I know how to make a good application to top universities. All in all, I have thoroughly enjoyed myself during the past two years and would definitely recommend the programme to every single person wanting to study Law.

Pathways to Law has provided me with opportunities which would have otherwise been unavailable. Through the academic sessions at LSE I was able to explore areas of law such as human rights and family law, whilst visits to the Supreme Court and Inner Temple were vital in giving me a first-hand insight into the legal world. The work experience at Edwards Wildman that I gained through the programme gave me the practical insight I needed to decide whether or not a career in law was for me.
During my preparation for applying to university, my student mentor was on hand to guide me through the university application process and provided vital support by proof-reading countless drafts of my personal statement! It’s great that the programme includes a residential conference which gives a taste of university life as well as the chance to meet like-minded students from across the country.
Pathways to Law was instrumental in guiding me on my route to university and I am excited to join LSE and become immersed in student life!
