What is Pathways to Law?

Pathways to Law is an illuminating  two-year programme, designed to help students find out more about the legal profession, studying law at university, develop the skills needed to apply, enter and work in this field.  Through workshops, lectures, visits to Law Firms, work experience, and a whole lot more.

It is also provides the opportunity to meet other students who are interested in the legal profession and preparing themselves for university and beyond.  Hear more about the programme from one of our lovely students.

Why do we run the program?

The Sutton Trust champions social mobility from birth to the workplace so that all young people have the chance to succeed in life.  Simply put we agree with this ethos! The purposes align with other programs offered in The Law Faculty. 

How to apply / Can I apply

If you attend and have always attended, a state-funded non fee paying school or college, are in Year 12 at the start of the program and live within a reasonable commuting distance of the university, you can enter the running.  Since competition for places is higher, further criteria for entry and the application form can be found on The Sutton Trust Website.
