Law in Society mentoring

Get insight from a professional who’s studied Law and is using it in a non-corporate role.

Following a growing demand from LLB Law students, this scheme was set up to give you exposure to Law graduates who have taken an alternative career path in non-corporate law. For example, those who have roles within mental health law, human rights, international development or the Police.

How mentoring can benefit you

Get support and advice from someone who has been in your position and can help you to consider your studies in the context of the wider world.

What’s involved?

You’ll be matched with a mentor in a group with around four or five other students.

We arrange the first meeting, then your group will arrange two further meetings. The meetings can be virtual or in person, and you’ll have the opportunity to ask them questions and learn from their experiences and insights. 

We also ask you to complete a short reflective report on your experience.


The Law in Society mentoring scheme is currently available for second-year LLB Law students.

Applications for the 2019/20 scheme are now closed.

Find out more and apply through the student intranet.

The scheme benefitted me in lots of ways! It was a great way to get an insight into what it’s like working in a major international body and hear experiences of working in other countries and with other organisations. I was considering a Masters degree at the time and it was great to talk through my future plans.
