There will also be mentoring sessions taking place during the summer, with experienced legal professionals from different sectors coming together with law students from diverse backgrounds, to share valuable career insights and tips that will help the students confidence, build valuable connections as well as clarity for what career path they wish to take.
It is a pleasure to be able to work with such a forward thinking university and to help remove barriers students have when it comes to building connections, valuable experience and insights which will help their careers thrive.
