Legal Work Experience

GLS Diversity Summer Scheme

Aspiring Solicitors has partnered with Barclays Legal and four law firms to deliver a unique legal work experience for our members with Aspergers Syndrome.

We would like to invite 5 students to experience one week of work experience with the Government Legal Department. Students on the Diversity Summer Scheme will get to undertake a legislation and litigation exercise, go on tours of Parliament, meet with GLS lawyers and receive advice on careers. The week long scheme is interactive and fun.

This scheme will take place from Monday 2 July to Friday 6 July 2018.
