Campus Ambassadors

Our campus ambassadors play an invaluable role in promoting Aspiring Solicitors at their university or institution, and ensuring that many more students can find out about the services and assistance we offer.  They help us plan events and workshops, manage their university’s Facebook page to promote our opportunities, and provide insights into how best we can reach out to more members.

In return, our ambassadors are able to develop key transferable skills to enhance their CV and application forms, and have the opportunity to attend employability and law firm events.

We currently have ambassadors at over 60 UK and Irish universities.

How to apply

Applications for our 2018/19 voluntary positions will open on Monday 29 January 2018, and will close at 5pm on Friday 23 February 2018.  You will be able to apply on this page.

What we are looking for

We are ideally looking for first or second year law students with a strong academic record, and who are on track to achieve a 2:1. Our ambassadors also need to be able to communicate clearly, have good organisational skills, plenty of initiative and a proactive approach.

What we offer in return

  • Opportunity to develop key employability skills, which are essential to vacation scheme and training contract applications
  • A guaranteed place on one Aspiring Solicitors open day events or flagship events during the 2018/19 academic year
  • Exclusive employability appointments only for campus ambassadors at key application/recruitment times of the year
  • A guaranteed place on one of our HeadStart events for our highest-performing ambassadors
