The Young Lawyer Programme

Sunday 26th November 2017

University College, London (UCL)

(see tabs above to learn more about the timetable of each day)

  • Becoming a lawyer is one of the most prestigious careers in the eyes of 15-18 year-olds. Such popularity makes work experience difficult to secure. The Young Lawyer programme brings top, established lawyers to UCL to provide you with everything you would seek to gain from an internship at a world-class law practice.

    There are three clear outcomes for the day:

    • You will gain a genuine experience of life as a lawyer in various disciplines, both through sessions with solicitors and barristers from areas such as criminal, corporate and human rights; AND through undertaking some key tasks yourself including legal analysis, giving advice, negotiating and performing advocacy. The case studies are based on real-life matters, thus putting you into the shoes of a lawyer for the duration of the programme.
    • You will be guided on how to get a high-flying job in the legal profession – with advice ranging from which A-levels to choose, which universities to apply for and how to tackle personal statements; all the way to how to excel in CVs, application forms and interviews.
    • You will meet with established lawyers from a variety of disciplines, and be given the chance to ask them questions on a personal basis. These professionals can become vital mentors for you throughout your career.

    Further, you can reference your attendance on the Young Lawyer Programme in your UCAS personal statement as an example of where you gained key skills such as teamwork, problem-solving, commercial awareness and public speaking.
