Mentoring Scheme 

LEDLET seeks to help everyone who makes an application for the summer scheme. While we cannot offer a place on the scheme to everyone, the Mentoring Scheme seeks to give every applicant the opportunity to gain an insight into what a career in law may entail.

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

The scheme allows students the opportunity, if they so choose, to meet a lawyer, hear first-hand about life in the law and possibly spend a day with a legal professional. This is an excellent chance for students to quiz legal professionals about a career in law and create lasting networks. 


When you are notified of the outcome of your application for the Summer Scheme you will be asked if you would like to take part in the mentoring scheme. If you answer yes, the LEDLET Secretary or the Legal Wales Scheme administrator will contact you to make arrangements. Your name and contact details will not be shared with anyone outside LEDLET/Legal Wales without your consent. We may ask you for feedback on the mentoring experience.
