Pathways to Law gives aspirational and academically able students in the South West expertise in law, experience of student life and advice on preparing for higher education. Those who take part develop the skills and confidence to pursue a successful legal career

This programme is aimed at Sixth Formers who are the first in their family to apply to university. Participants get expert support, advice and mentoring, as well as the chance to work with academics, subject experts and representatives from various legal organisations, during a period of two years. Through on-campus events and live Q and A sessions they have the opportunity to ask questions and discuss student finance and the university application process and complete a work experience placement. They also have the opportunity to visit other prestigious universities, and attend a national residential conference.

Law academics teach modules on the constitution, negotiation, human rights and justice. This is the second cohort of students to graduate from the course. Many students from the first cohort are now studying at top universities, including the University of Exeter.

Matt won the 'Most improved Student' Award. He said the course had been hugely beneficial, and had given an insight into university life as well as a legal career. For him, one of the highlights was the week's residential he completed at Warwick university last Summer.

We are very grateful to Kate Blackmore, the co-ordinator of the programme, for providing this brilliant opportunity and hope to see some of next year's yr 12s applying for a place.
