Mayfair Rise Solicitors are proud to be supporting the next generation of lawyers by running an “Insight into a Career in Law” programme for sixth formers.

The programme has been designed to reflect the fact it is hard to give meaningful work experience to students below degree level. The insight is provided via a workbook with a mix of online training, videos and reflection exercises which students work their way through. This means you can work through it at your own pace to fit in around your school or other commitments.

Day 1 Introduction to life as a lawyer
Day 2 Introduction to the different UK courts including a trip to a Magistrates or Crown Court (Covid permitting)
Day 3 Interactive introduction into different areas of law
Day 4 Trip to High Court/ Court of Appeal (or live link via YouTube)
Day 5 Final Reflections and video training, including a Q&A session with a qualified solicitor.

“I found this experience to be a hugely informative introduction and provide a realistic insight into life as a lawyer.”

If you are a sixth form student who has not been able to get any work experience and is interested in a career in law, please email: telling us why the programme would be of benefit to you.
