Yes you can. You should discuss the skills and what you have learnt through mentoring in your personal statement for UCAS or your application for a legal apprenticeship. Your mentor will also help you with your applications.
Mentors are solicitors, barristers, legal executives and paralegals. They also work in a variety of legal fields. We will try to match you with a mentor who works in the area you are interested in. Your mentor is there to help you with developing your life skills and expanding your network. They can help connect you with people in the legal profession you are interested in and support you to reach out and find work placement opportunities.
Yes. Start in a professional formal way. Then the tone will be set after your first meeting together. A mentor should be shown respect but also you will be getting to know each other as two equals and every mentorship is different. You should wear whatever makes you feel comfortable, without making others around you uncomfortable (smart-casual).
Yes. All your meetings will be online via your preferred online video call app.
Your mentor will have a one-off meeting with you (called a checking-in meeting) between 3 to 6 months after the programme ends to check on the progress you have made since the end of the programme. We hope this will keep you motivated as we expect you will have worked hard to ensure you have news of your progress to share with your mentor.
