5 of our Year 12 students applied to be part of the Pathways to Law Programme and all 5 have been successful in gaining a place. The students have done amazingly well as the application process and the entry criteria are rigorous and the competition for places was particularly intense this year, so we can be especially proud. The students involved are Amber Heron, Lucy Lewis. Daisy Abbott, Charlotte Gooch, Rebecca Clarke
Pathways to Law is a really exciting national project run by a number of Russell Group Universities in collaboration with the Sutton Trust. Their aim is to encourage and support very able state school students who are interested in pursuing a career in Law. Students have to achieved at least 5 A*-A grades at GCSE to be eligible to apply.
The programme lasts for 2 years and successful applicants are fully-funded to take part in a wide-range of exciting events and activities including:
- Workshops and lectures
- A work experience placement (usually at a top London Law firm)
- Trips to the Inner Temple and Royal Courts of Justice in London
- A residential conference in Warwick (mock interviews and mooting)
- E-mentoring from a university Law student
