The Sutton Trust

Grant: £300,000
February 10, 2016

The scheme, originally established in 2006 by the College of Law and Sutton Trust, is the largest programme of its kind in the UK.

The programme has targeted 17/18 year olds who have been eligible for free school meals or whose parents have not been to university. Each year over 400 students are enrolled in the programme to aid their understanding, interest and access to legal education.

Some elements are delivered by the universities (how to fill an application to university, CV and interview techniques, law workshops), law firms (work experience), e-mentoring (Brightside Trust), visit to Inner temple and Royal Courts of Justice in London etc. Over 3200 students have benefited from the programme to date.

The Phase 4 funding by the Foundation, together with funds and or support from universities, law firms and other employers will enable a further 1800 more placements over the next 4 years. The programme is also being extended to 15/16 year olds.
