Lord Edmund Davies Legal Education Trust

Ymddiriedolaeth Addysg Gyfreithiol yr Arglwydd Edmund Davies 


Welcome - Croeso

The Lord Edmund Davies Legal Education Trust, or LEDLET for short, is an independent charity established in 2013 to serve young people living in Wales or having a connection with Wales who are interested in entering the legal profession. The charity is run by a team of trustees from a diverse range of legal backgrounds, all with connections to Wales. In particular, LEDLET was founded with the aim of ensuring that no one in society would conclude that their background would prevent them from entering the law.

Every year the charity hosts a summer scheme in London for up to 10 students to experience what a legal career may entail; with all travel, meals and accommodation paid for by the trust. The aim of this is to provide Welsh students with the opportunity to make an informed decision about whether a career in law is for them. In 2020, we teamed up with the Legal Wales Foundation to run the scheme simultaneously in Cardiff for up to a further 10 students - we have teamed up with Legal Wales again for 2021.
