The Pathways to Law programme was set up by the Sutton Trust and The Legal Education Foundation in 2006 to inspire and support academically-able students from non-privileged backgrounds who are interested in a career in Law.
Queen Mary University London joined the Pathways to Law programme in 2016 and launched an exciting programme for a cohort of 45 Year 12 students including:
The trips to the Inner Temple, the Royal Courts of Justice and a top law firm were incredibly exciting and informative. Shadowing trainees in the work placement gave me an insight in how it would be working as a lawyer. The various lessons in CV writing, personal statement, public speaking and effective study methods instilled confidence in me and helped support me through my A-level work.
