    Aspiring Solicitors is delighted to deliver our second Black Aspiring Solicitors Mentoring Scheme to approximately 24 black / mixed black AS members. This year’s scheme will run from September 2020 and will be open to both law and non-law students who are eligible for a vacation scheme (i.e. penultimate or final year students). Aspiring Solicitors will be partnering with each of A&O, Mayer Brown, Reed Smith and HSF who will each run their own individual scheme.

    Securing a place on the scheme will not only give you access to regular mentoring with A&O, Mayer Brown, Reed Smith or HSF lawyers, but you will also have the opportunity to attend bespoke workshops covering everything from a tailored application masterclass, interview masterclass and how to tackle commercial awareness questions.  Each of A&O, Mayer Brown, Reed Smith and HSF will also host exclusive networking events, allowing you to meet trainees, associates and partners, whilst building your profile ahead of the competitive application season.


    To be eligible for this mentoring scheme, you must be accepted onto our AS Aspire Programme.

    Additionally, you must be of black or mixed black heritage, have achieved ABB at A level and be on track to receiving a 2:1 university degree classification.
