On Wednesday 23 September the Law Department at Notre Dame hosted a live online presentation from the University of Leeds about the Sutton Trust's Pathway to Law Programme. 21 students attended the event.
The two-year programme, offered in conjunction with the University of Leeds and the Sutton Trust, will provide a select number of our students with a range of experiences to develop their understanding and knowledge of the legal profession. These experiences include a summer school, access to mentors, work experience placements, and online access to the Sutton Trust. Completion of the programme is highly advantageous to students who wish to study law at university, or who seek full-time employment or a degree level apprenticeship in the sector. Students can also benefit from contextual reduced offers to study law at the University of Leeds.
Law teacher Ms. Lydia Newman said, "This was a fantastic and informative presentation by Annabel Box from the Social Sciences Department at the University of Leeds. This programme is an amazing opportunity for our students to gain a real insight into both the legal profession and studying at a Russell Group university."
Participation in the programme depends on students meeting a range of eligibility criteria. Applications close on 23 October, with more details available from the Law Department.
