The Future Lawyer Summer Experience

The Ultimate Work Experience in Law

Overview

Last chance to register for this Summer Experience! We only have a few places left and expect to close registration in the next few days.

The Future Lawyer Summer Experience gives students aged 12-14 a 360-degree, fully-immersive experience of working as a lawyer in London.

Over the course of two weeks, students aged 12-14 will have some of the most prestigious experiences of law that one can imagine: advocating a real-life case, defending innocent suspects, and conducting commercial law negotiations.   

Also available on the Summer Experience are opportunities to meet barristers in their chambers; take part in a legal ‘escape room’,  and benefit from a full day dedicated to ‘Personal Career Coaching’.

Join us for a life-changing experience that will serve as an outstanding differentiator on your university application form and set you up for a future as a successful lawyer.
