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. Travel, meals and accommodation are 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; and in view of the Covid-19 epidemic, we are taking the scheme online for the first time, with 24 Welsh students participating.
Our motto: AIM HIGH! ANELA'N UCHEL!
APPLICATIONS FOR THE SUMMER SCHEME 2020 HAVE NOW CLOSED
CLOSING DATE: 14th FEBRUARY 2020
In light of the recent Government advice regarding the outbreak of COVID-19, LEDLET has made the decision not to hold the scheme in person in either London or Cardiff this summer. Instead, we are striving to design a scheme which can be delivered online, to deliver some key benefits of the scheme to students in as safe and effective a way as possible. We appreciate this is an uncertain time for everyone and we aim to keep you all updated throughout this period.
