After five successful years, during which our members have obtained over 1,400 vacation schemes and training contracts, Aspiring Solicitors is changing how we provide our services to students. The main reason for this change is to ensure that we continue to reach out to, and assist, the students who need it the most, in the most meaningful manner possible.
From September 2018, we are launching ‘Aspire’. This 9-month programme for approximately 300 Aspiring Solicitors members will include bespoke careers coaching throughout the academic year from our expert legal employability team in the form of fortnightly employability appointments, career strategy sessions, mock interviews and assessment centre preparation, as well as the opportunity to attend specific open days and be mentored by one of our partner law firms or legal teams. Barclays Legal, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Freshfields and Dentons (amongst others) will be providing commercial mentoring opportunities for Aspire members.
Only our members on AS Aspire will be eligible for our mentoring programmes, some of our work experience programmes, the majority of our open days and all employability appointments (mock interviews, telephone advice).
