Experience real life law

The core curriculum is richly supported by opportunities to participate in pro-bono work, or secure an internship, pupilage or mentor. Initiatives such as the Bristol Law Clinic and Lawyers Without Borders will help build skills, empathy and much more to deepen your learning experience.

I found the mentoring scheme to be extremely rewarding. It was an eye-opening experience. I was assigned to a mentor from Herbert Smith Freehills, so caught a glimpse of how things worked in an international law firm. I had my questions about the firm, the industry and a career as a solicitor in London kindly answered from the perspectives of both a senior associate and a trainee - which I think, is highly valuable for any law student considering a similar career.
