Pathways to Law
Applications for Year 12 students are now closed.
Pathways to Law was set up in 2006 by the Sutton Trust and the College of Law (now the Legal Education Foundation) to widen access to the legal profession. The Pathways scheme delivers a varied programme of lectures, seminars, advice and guidance sessions, skills development workshops and interaction with undergraduate students and professionals through e-mentoring and a legal work placement.
Students join Pathways to Law in year 12 and continue through to the end of year 13. Students on the programme are invited to attend LSE based academic sessions on legal issues as well as a diverse range of topics including choosing and applying to university, CV and interview techniques, subject-specific revision sessions and workshops on different areas of the law. Students will also visit the Supreme Court, Inner Temple and the Royal Courts of Justice. In addition they will take part in work experience in the legal sector as well as receiving e-mentoring from LSE undergraduate law students.
