THE YOUNG LAWYER PROGRAMME
Sunday 20th March 2016
University College, London (UCL)
Becoming a lawyer is one of the most popular career aspirations amongst 15-18 year-olds. Such popularity makes work experience so difficult to secure. The Young Lawyer programme brings top, established lawyers into a room to provide you with everything you would seek to gain from work experience at a world-class law firm.
On the programme, you will, for one day, be put into the shoes of an experienced lawyer, to gain a real understanding of what the profession involves and how exactly to get to the top. We will work with you so you gain both the hard skills (how the job is actually done) as well as the crucial soft skills required to make it in any profession. More importantly, participation in the programme will demonstrate to recruiters that you have a true commitment to developing yourself into a successful professional.
Our students are ambitious, hard-working, and determined to succeed in the world of law. We provide you with the knowledge, skills, professional network, and application techniques to give you a competitive advantage over your peers. Some of the qualities we seek to instil are listed below, and are highly desired by universities as well as employers:
- Public speaking and presentation skills
- CV/cover letter/application form writing
- Interview techniques
- Commercial awareness and knowledge of organisational dynamics
- Innovation and initiative
- Marketing and self-branding
The day costs £110 to attend.
