The LEDLET Summer Scheme 2016
November 10, 2015
In July every year, LEDLET invites ten lower-sixth-form students from across Wales to spend a week in legal London undertaking legal work experience and receiving careers advice. Students are selected according to merit and means, with priority given to those from particularly underprivileged backgrounds and disadvantaged areas. Lower-sixth-form students are targeted with a view to influencing their selection of universities and degree courses in advance of the oncoming autumn term and UCAS applications.
Each student spends a day with a barrister, a day with a solicitor and a day sitting with a judge at the Old Bailey. On their last morning, they receive guidance on university applications from admissions tutors at University College London. In the evening they meet Welsh law students and lawyers, and participate in moots and educational events e.g. a seminar with the Chairman of the Law Commission, and lectures at law firms.
The entirety of their travel, meals and accommodation is funded by LEDLET. Bursaries are made available to those who do not own a suit and cannot afford to buy their own.
