The Judicial Mentoring Scheme runs in tandem with the Summer Scheme. Any applicant not successful on the Summer Scheme may be put through to the Judicial Mentoring Scheme for the same year.

What happens when I am put on the Judicial Mentoring Scheme?
When you are notified of the outcome of the Summer Scheme you are asked if you would like to take part in the mentoring scheme; if the answers yes, you complete a confidentiality form, and your name is sent to the administrator at the courts' service. The administrator is sent your details and will contact you to make arrangements to visit a court near to your home on a mutually convenient date. Once the day has been completed you will need to send in a completed questionnaire to the LEDLET Secretary.
