Law taster sessions
These are a combination of academic and law in practice-related activities, delivered by university academics and professionals in the field. In previous years, the law sessions have covered Criminal, Commercial, Human Rights and EU law. Law-related activities may include off-site visits to barristers’ chambers, Inner Temple and the opportunity to “shadow” a university law student and attend one of their lectures.
Pathways to Law is a national programme, and Pathways students from across the country have the opportunity to apply for a four-day residential conference at the University of Warwick. The conference provides students with an experience of university life, allowing them to meet students from other Pathways groups.
Pathways students will be able to apply for work experience at one of London’s leading law firms during half term, Easter or the summer holidays in Year 12. In previous years, work experience has been undertaken at firms including Linklaters, DLA Piper, Eversheds and Hogan Lovells.
All students on Pathways to Law are offered an undergraduate Law mentor for the duration of the programme. Using the Brightside Trust’s e-mentoring platform, students receive regular news feeds from the legal world, gain access to bespoke guidance and maintain regular contact with their mentor.
